Saxman is an unincorporated community in southwestern Wilson Township, Rice County, Kansas, United States. Located along Cow Creek just above its confluence with Jarvis Creek, it lies along local roads southeast of Lyons, the county seat of Rice County.
For millennia, the land now known as Kansas was inhabited by Native Americans. In 1803, most of modern Kansas was secured by the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase. In 1854, the Kansas Territory was organized, then in 1861 Kansas became the 34th U.S. state. In 1867, Rice County was founded.
In May 2007, Saxman was severely affected by flooding from Cow Creek. The flooding washed away roads and farms and damaged many of the community's residences. Several of the community's residents were forced to evacuate.
