A number of the presentations at the International Country Music Conference have pointed out that the residents of Winchester, Virginia were less than impressed with their wild child neighbor, Virginia Patterson Hensley, who was struggling to become a country music singer. Even after she gained success as Patsy Cline her reputation overshadowed any positive spotlight she could bring to the community. Her death did nothing to improve her status in the town.
At long last the town is acknowledging their most famous musical native. The house Patsy Cline lived in from 1948 until 1953 has been restored and is now open seasonally for fans to visit.
