K-12 was as original Kansas Highway across the southern tier of counties.

In 1930, a new US highway, US 160 was created. 160 would supplant K-12 east of Meade as well as along the concurrancy with US 54 between US 83 and Meade. The segment between Richfield and US 54 remained until it was re-designated as an extension of K-51 in 1937.
