History

Corcoran was founded by Hobart Johnstone Whitley a prominent land developer from southern California, took the lead in building Corcoran (the main street of the community is named in his honor). Liking what he saw during a visit to the area in 1905 (a blacksmith shop, small store, scattered homes and a lush, untapped vista with herds of grazing wild hogs, horses and steers) Whitley purchased 32,000 acres to start development and moved a member of his real estate firm, J. W. Guiberson, to the area. Guiberson became one of the many pioneers of the community, building the first home and business structure in Corcoran. His family also helped establish the first church in the community, an event which helped lead to the towns incorporation on August 14, 1914. The basis of Corcorans economy then and now is agriculture. Initially, the most successful crops were grains, alfalfa and sugar beets.

The first post office opened in 1901.
