Patsy Cline, a world-famous country music singer was an American original. With her haunting voice and sophisticated sound, she brought country music down from the mountains and into the hearts of millions of people. Beginning with her 1957 self-titled debut record, Patsy was one of the first country music artists to successfully crossover on both the pop and country charts. With each successive album, her star grew brighter, culminating in 1961 with her classic number one smash “Crazy”. Though her groundbreaking career lasted less than a decade, Patsy’s unique talent and distinctive voice reverberate still today. As the first woman inducted into the County Music Hall of Fame, she was a pioneer in her field who opened the door for many other talented female singers. Artists ranging from Loretta Lynn to Carrie Underwood cite Patsy as not only an influence, but also a guide in their musical journeys to success.

The Patsy Cline Historic House stands as an icon for Patsy Cline fans and admirers hoping to know first hand the story of Patsy’s early years. Patsy Cline’s home offers a window on the famed singer’s early road to stardom. Located in a working-class neighborhood in the city of Winchester, Virginia, this modest house was the residence of country music legend Patsy Cline, who lived here from 1948-53, and intermittently through 1957, longer than at any other house associated with her. Even after her move to Nashville, she considered this South Kent Street house her home. The Patsy Cline Historic House is on the National Register of Historic Places.
