Corwin was laid out by Cyrus Foltz in 1856 and consisted of seven lots near the rail line which ran south out of Lafayette. The town never flourished, though, and was eclipsed by nearby Romney. Later maps sometimes cite the town as Corwin Station.
A post office was established at Corwin in 1854, but was discontinued in that same year.
Corwin is located at 40°15'5" North, 86°54'52" West (40.251426, -86.914397) at an elevation of approximately 740 feet. It sits in Randolph Township half a mile west of the town of Romney and is on a north/south CSX rail line.
