Corcoran is quickly growing to be a popular place to live because of its proximity to the cities without being overly busy. This serene town is just outside of Maple Grove and is between highway 55 and I-94 for an easy commute to the cities. Corcoran is a charming community where people are welcoming and supportive of community efforts and events.
This town offers a rich history and credits much of its early development to one of its founders by the name of Patrick Corcoran, which is where the town got its name. Corcoran built the school and acted as the first school teacher, as well as, first postmaster, builder and manager of the first general store. After expanding and rebuilding several times, the general store also acted as a town hall and place of public entertainment. There is so much history and community-care involved in the essence of Corcoran. It truly is a hidden gem!
