Established shortly after June 22, 1888, by the railroad, it was originally named Lamborn. However, the name was changed to Kanorado on July 5. With the town site on the eastern side of the border of Kansas and Colorado, the town was named in honor of those two states. It is the only other town in the county besides Goodland to become incorporated.
The ethnicity of its settlers is not known.
