Originally, in the late 1800's Kerman was called "Collis" in honor of the Southern Pacific Railroad President at the time, Collis P. Huntington. The Southern Pacific Railroad line was built through Kerman in 1891. The name was changed to Kerman in 1906 when two Los Angels Capitalists, William G. Kerchoff and Jacob Mansar, purchased a large tract of land from the insolvent Bank of California. With a water supply and electrical power being brought to the area the town quickly grew. The city of Kerman was incorporated in 1946.
