Coram began as a logging town on the South Fork of the Flathead River in 1905. The community prospered as the timber industry developed, and received a boost with the arrival of the Great Northern Railway. Railroad officials initially named the train station Citadel. In 1914, the community was renamed for James A. Coram, who had arrived in the Kalispell area in 1893 to be a supervisor for the Butte & Montana Commercial Company's logging operations. Coram boomed between 1948 and 1953, during construction of the nearby Hungry Horse Dam.(Copyright 2009, Montana Historical Society: Montana Place Names from Alzada to Zortman, Montana Historical Society Research Center Staff)
