Origins and Evolution

“Home on the Range” has humble beginnings, its roots tracing back to the 19th century. The song is believed to have originated as a poem penned by Dr. Brewster M. Higley, a physician from Kansas, in the early 1870s. Titled “My Western Home,” Higley’s verses painted a vivid picture of the beauty and serenity of the Kansas prairie.

The poem caught the attention of Daniel Kelley, a musician and carpenter, who composed a melody to accompany the lyrics. Together, Higley’s words and Kelley’s music gave birth to what would become one of America’s most cherished folk songs.

Over time, “My Western Home” underwent several revisions, with verses added and modified to reflect the experiences of various regions across the United States. By the late 19th century, the song had evolved into the rendition that we know today as “Home on the Range.”
