Childhood Home of Patsy Cline

Childhood Home of Patsy Cline


Winchester, Virginia (VA), US
“Only 608 S. Kent St. retains much of its character as the girlhood home of Patsy Cline, and remains as the place where she lived the longest,” according Dr. Douglas Gomery, a professor of media history at the University of Maryland, who assisted state officials in preparing the register nomination.

The dining room where Cline’s mother, Hilda Hensley, sewed the young singer’s signature cowgirl dresses and nightclub outfits remains relatively unchanged from its appearance in the 1950s.

The back yard — its landscaping, limestone steps, and a side yard fence — appears much as it did in photographs of Cline decorating a convertible for Winchester’s annual Apple Blossom Festival parade, an event she participated in as a rising star.
