From United Health, head west on Whitley Avenue (toward Van Dorsten Avenue) for approximately .1 mile.
Cal-Econ Realty has displayed historical military remembrances that pay tribute to one of Corcoran's finest heroes, Kenyon O. DeVaney. DeVaney, once a B 17 pilot, started his Air Force service in the summer of 1943 DeVaney was a part of the 423 Squadron of the 306 Bombardment Wing, flying the Bowing B 17 Flying Fortress. After the end of the war, DeVaney's squadron was involved in photographic mapping portions of Europe and North Africa. In August of 1946, he completed his time in the Airforce. He came back to Corcoran where his family was operating a store located at Oregon and Dairy Avenues. The business served as a social mecha for many farm workers and townspeople, providing services such as check cashing. DeVaney owned a small private plane that he would use to drop weekly advertisement about the market while flying over town. He was married to Phyllis Gilkey and managed operations as a partner in Gilkey Farms. Cal-Econ has a military display complete with various armed forces including DeVaney's uniform and wings. Other memorabilia, mannequin displaying a WAVE (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) Navy uniform and metals from WWII, photos of vintage equipment, and antique history books of WWII are also available for viewing. Walking tour guests can also view a Purple Heart medal from WWII (a United States military decoration awarded in the name of the President to those who are wounded or killed while serving), awarded to Charles Hurley posthumously. With the medal is also the original letter from the Army written to Hurley's parents informing them of his death.
