The town was incorporated in 1868 and, soon after, a cable ferry was built across the Spring River. Baxter Springs is the biggest town of the Kansas segment of Route 66. It is well known for its Historic Baxter Springs Independent Oil and Gas Service Station, listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, and the American Civil War battle of "Baxter Springs" and the nearby Historic Site: "Rainbow Bridge". Also around 1868, Texas cattlemen drove large herds of cattle from the southern plains and used Baxter Springs as a way point to the northern markets linking to railroads to the East. This led to the dramatic growth of Baxter Springs by the early 1870s as the first "cow town" in Kansas. In 1926 the city's downtown main street was designated as part of the trans-continental U.S. Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles.
The city had some economic success in the early twentieth century associated with lead mining in the area. By the 1940s, the high-quality lead had mostly been mined, and the industry declined. Some towns nearby disappeared altogether. Environmental restoration to correct damage left by mining has been underway for some time.
Baxter Springs is mentioned in the song "Choctaw Bingo" by musician James McMurtry. Baxter Springs is also the setting for two of Canadian playwright, Norm Foster's plays; "Outlaw" and "Jenny's House of Joy". Baxter Springs has many interesting and unique people making it a cultural and interesting place to visit.
