The Patsy Cline Historic House is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register.
Located in a working-class neighborhood in the City of Winchester, Virginia, this modest house was the residence of country music legend Patsy Cline (1932-63), who lived here from the ages of 16 to 21, when she married Gerald Cline. Patsy resided here from 1948-53, longer than at any other house associated with her in the Winchester and Nashville areas, and she returned to it intermittently until her singing career began in 1957.
More than 40 years after Cline's tragic death in 1963, her country music legacy endures. Cline was the first solo female singer to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1960, and the first woman to be inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1973. Cline's albums and CDs continue to sell "platinum" every year and she has been on Billboard Magazine's Top Country Album List for the last ten years. "Crazy," one of Patsy's best-known songs written by Willie Nelson, continues to be the number one jukebox hit of all time.
