The Rice-Tremonti Home dates from 1844 and was built on the Santa Fe Trail, by the Archibald Rice Family and their company of enslaved individuals. The family provided animal feed for westward travelers and was a place of respite for the travelers.

The house survived the ravaged of the Civil War and continued as an operating farm well into the 20th Century.
