When Dr. Brewster Higley wrote those words on the banks of Beaver Creek near Athol, Kans., in 1872, he was writing about his Kansas experiences of blue skies and endless prairie. Over the years, Higley's song became popular across America and was performed by singers from 1920's cowboy crooner Vernon Dalhart to Gene Autry to Frank Sinatra. In 1932, President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed the song his favorite, and his enthusiasm spread across the country. You can recapture some of the Home of the Range experience today. As you drive through the rolling hills of the prairie and amber filds of grain, take time to stop in one of the small Kansas towns that welcome visitors with famed Midwestern hometown hospitality symbolized in the song as well.
