In 1854, the Kansas Territory was organized, then in 1861 Kansas became the 34th U.S. state. In 1867, Rice County was founded.

Frederick was a shipping point at the junction of the Missouri Pacific and the St. Louis & San Francisco railroads.[7]

A post office was opened in Frederick (also spelled historically Frederic) in 1887, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1954.[8]
