History

Siberia was platted in 1869. According to legend, the town was originally going to be named Sabaria, after the place where Saint Martin of Tours was born. However, a Post Office Department employee designated the new community as Siberia, and the name stuck.

A post office was established at Siberia in 1883, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1983.
