Divide is a census-designated place and a U.S. Post Office in Teller County, Colorado, United States. The population as of the 2010 Census was 127. Divide sits on the north slope of Pikes Peak on U.S. Highway 24. Ute Pass is immediately west of town. The Divide Post Office has the ZIP Code 80814.
There are multiple gas stations near the highway for travelers, a small grocery store, post office, Summit Elementary, and multiple churches. Divide is also the home of the Teller County Sheriff's office off of Hwy 24. Teller County has a jail behind the Sheriff's office as well, infamous for holding the 'Texas Seven' back in early 2000.
Divide is a growing, planned community. Divide is planned in three areas: the town center, rural residential land parcels, and larger rural land parcels.
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.
