Peel post office was established in 1888 and named for congressman Samuel W. Peel of Arkansas. Peel is one of the few places in the American West named for a Confederate soldier. In 1915 Peel had a public school and a daily stagecoach to Roseburg. The post office closed in 1921. The 1943 Cavitt Creek Bridge, a covered bridge, is about a mile south of the community.
