It is here that Dr. Brewster Higley wrote "Home on the Range". Indeed, the north central region of Kansas has vast open landscapes "where the buffalo roam, and the deer and the antelope play".

It includes Phillips, Smith, Jewell, Republic, Rooks, Osborne, Mitchell, Cloud, Ellis, Russell, Lincoln, Ottawa, Ellsworth, and Saline counties.
