Patsy Cline’s Home May Open to the Public
The Winchester, Va. home where Patsy Cline lived as a teenager may soon be open to the public. Celebrating Patsy Cline Inc. owns the house where the country legend lived with her family from 1948 - 1953. The organization has asked government officials to consider changing the city's zoning ordinance to allow museums in the neighborhood.
"It was from this house that her career blossomed with many performances as a teenager, singing in Winchester and surrounding areas," CPC President Judy Sue Huyett-Kempf tells The Winchester Star. "From this house, fans can follow the path left by this famous icon in country music."
"I first met her when she lived there," Cline's widower Charlie Dick recalls. "I spent half my time over there when we were dating."
Cline died in a 1963 plane crash when she was just 30 years old. She's best known for such country classics as 'Walkin' After Midnight,' 'Crazy' and 'I Fall to Pieces.'
