Rice is an unincorporated rural community in Cloud County, Kansas, United States.[1]

History[edit]

In the 19th century, Rice was a station on the Central Branch Union Pacific Railroad, and the town's proximity to the larger trading center of Concordia inhibited its growth.[2]

A post office was opened in Rice in 1878, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1980.[3]

Notable people[edit]

  • Ross Doyen, farmer, rancher, and Kansas state legislator, was born near Rice.[4]
