History

Olivehurst was first largely settled by people from the Midwest during the Great Depression who were looking for fertile land, availability of jobs, and a better future. People from the town have been known to refer to this group of people as Okies. These Okies were following migrant workers such as those of Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Mexican, and Native American background.

The economy has been largely focused on agriculture, but since the 1950s jobs have been increasingly focused on mill and manufacturing work. Today's economy is centered around a "commuter economy" where many of the residents work outside of the town.[3]

A post office opened at Olivehurst in 1941.[2]
