Riceville was a tannery town that was very successful from 1898 to 1906. In 1900, there were at least 75 people, a school, and the nearest railroad station was located in Costigan. The town was abandoned some time in 1906 after the tannery burnt down, which devastated the town. No one attempted to rebuild it since everyone who lived in Riceville left after the fire.
Only a few artifacts, abandoned roads, and foundations remain, though most of it is in terrible condition. People who live near the town have helped take care of the cemetery. One man set up a fence around it, and a group of people set up a sign.
