Kořenov was established, in administrative terms, in 1960 by joining parts of the independent villages of Polubný and Příchovice with the settlements of Rejdice and Jizerka, then a part of Bílý potok. The new name was taken after one of the parts of Polubný. The locals used to make a living in mining, timber production, home clothmaking and spinning. Today the village depends largely on tourism. The Štěpánka viewing tower at an altitude of 958 m a.s.l. and the Bukovec mountain near Jizerka, 1005 m a.s.l., are local landmarks. The rack railway track Tanvald - Kořenov - Harrachov is a popular tourist attraction of the region.
