These photos are of pages of the Falcon Herald, dated Jan. 4, 1890, found in the walls of an early Falcon home. Click a picture to enlarge.

The Falcon Herald was a weekly newspaper launched in Falcon, Colo., in 1890. One might imagine a weekly newspaper chock full of articles about homesteading and ranching, the happenings at the six town saloons and pool hall, the visitors in and out of the two train stations and a few ads citing the best deals at Falcon's blacksmith shop and two general stores.

However, the introduction of the automobile and a flood in the mid 1930s fueled a change in Falcon. The Rock Island railroad junction closed and businesses followed. The lively center of town turned into a ghost town, and the Falcon Herald was no longer.

Well, Falcon is once again a boomtown. The movement toward the prairie has spurred growth beyond many of the old homesteaders' imaginations. Amid the boom was a chance to give birth to a new Falcon Herald; thus, we launched The New Falcon Herald in January 2004.

What began as a four-page newsletter has blossomed into a monthly newspaper, with 5,000 copies distributed the first Saturday of each month. Articles include information about what's happening in and around Falcon and the eastern plains. We focus on the school district, the fire department, the business and service groups and commercial and residential development.

Our regular monthly features have become a popular must-read for our subscribers and others. Check out Face to Face (an interview with a Falcon resident or business owner), Monkey Business (crazy happenings) and Rumors (interesting tidbits about what might be going on in Falcon). We also publish monthly columns on a variety of topics such as pet care, health and wellness, and book reviews.

Our mission is to provide the residents of Falcon, Calhan, Peyton and Black Forest with in-depth articles about local, state and national issues that affect them. As a monthly newspaper, we work toward articles of interest, rather than in-the-moment news. And we are always open to suggestions and information from our readers.

Thanks for checking our Web site.
