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

History

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.

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