History[edit]

Siam was originally called Detroit, and under the latter name had its start in 1875 when the railroad was extended to that point.[2] A train station was soon built, and called Attica Station.[2] The post office in the community was operated under the name Siam.[2] The Siam post office opened in 1878, and was discontinued in 1938.[3]
