History

Divide was originally called Hayden's Divide after geologist Ferdinand Vandeveer Hayden, the original surveyor of the area; settlers in the 1880s shortened the name to Divide. Divide was so named because water run-offs divide to the north, south, east and west of its location. There are multiple historical buildings that have been run-down and abandoned in the past, but are now beginning to be reconstructed to their original likeness.
