Males had a median income of $30,787 versus $21,792 for females. The per capita income for the city was only $13,458.

Many local residents are employed in agriculture. However, the community has been affected by the Great Recession as well as the decline of the cotton industry, the California drought and restrictions on pumping from the Sacramento River delta to protect endangered species. In November 2016, the unemployment rate was 11.1%.[14] The largest employers in Corcoran include the California State Prison, Corcoran, the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison, Corcoran, the Corcoran Unified School District, and the J. G. Boswell Company.[15]


Politics[edit] Federally, Corcoran is located within California's 21st congressional district, and is represented by Republican David Valadao. In the California State Legislature, Corcoran is located within: 16th California State Senate District, which is represented by Republican Andy Vidak 32nd California State Assembly District, represented by Democrat Rudy Salas. Corcoran is represented on the Kings County Board of Supervisors by Richard Valle of Corcoran.


History[edit] Corcoran was founded by Hobart Johnstone Whitley, a prominent land developer from southern California, who 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 (130 km2) to start development. Much like in the San Fernando Valley (Van Nuys and Canoga Park his "creations"), Whitley "leveraged" his holdings with the support of important Los Angeles businessmen. Whitley first intended the town be named "Otis", after Harrison Gray Otis of the Los Angeles Times, and streets as Otis, Sherman, Letts (the Broadway store) and Ross (after his son, Ross Whitley) show the connections. Whitley, it is claimed, purchased and platted some 150 towns over the American West—and Corcoran is one of his last. Whitley 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 town’s incorporation on August 14, 1914. The basis of Corcoran’s economy then and now is agriculture. Initially, the most successful crops were grains, alfalfa and sugar beets. The J. G. Boswell Company was established in Corcoran in 1921 and remains a major employer in the city. The first post office opened in 1901.[7]


Education[edit] Corcoran Unified School District is the public organization responsible for education in the town of Corcoran. The school district has seven schools. Bret Harte John C. Fremont Mark Twain John Muir Middle School Corcoran High School Corcoran Academy Kings Lake Educational Center


Railroads[edit] Corcoran is served by the BNSF Railway, which is the successor to the Santa Fe Railway. The mainline track through Corcoran was part of a route connecting the San Francisco Bay Area to Bakersfield, California. The track was constructed by the San Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Railway about 1898. Today, Amtrak California's San Joaquin stops at Corcoran station. From 1910-1934, the Kings Lake Shore Railroad operated a line that ran southwest from Corcoran to what is the now-extinct Tulare Lake. On December 2, 2010, the California High-Speed Rail Authority Board voted to start construction of the first part of the California High-Speed Rail line at Borden near Madera and continue it to Corcoran. Construction began in 2012.[16]
