AAA Editor Notes
Patsy Cline Historic House, 608 S. Kent St., is the childhood home of vocalist Patsy Cline, born Virginia Patterson Hensley in Winchester in 1932. Located in a working-class neighborhood, the small, four-room house was Cline's residence 1948-53. Today docents lead guided tours of the restored house, which is furnished with a handful of personal items belonging to the ill-fated singer and her family.
Killed in an airplane crash in 1963, Cline is buried in town at Shenandoah Memorial Park. A bell tower there memorializes the star who topped the record charts with such hits as “I Fall to Pieces” and “Crazy.”
Note: Parking is not permitted on the same side of the street as the historic house.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
