The origins of the Happy Birthday song are right here in Louisville. The Hill sisters were experimenting with teaching methods and wrote a song to greet their children called ‘Good Morning to You’ with the now known Happy Birthday melody. The children liked the song and began signing it at birthday parties, changing the lyrics to ‘Happy Birthday to you’. The Little Loomhouse is on the National Historic Landmarks Registry.
