MSV Exhibit Will Be First to Focus on Patsy Cline's Early Years

Posted: December 11, 2012


WINCHESTER —  “Becoming Patsy Cline,” a partnership between the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley and Celebrating Patsy Cline, will be the first museum exhibition to focus almost exclusively on the singer’s early years.

While Cline’s Nashville impact is still felt today, it was her formative years in and around Winchester that will be spotlight.

It will open Aug. 30 and continue through Feb. 2 in the museum’s Changing Exhibition Gallery.

The exhibit has been years in the making and is made possible with the support of Patsy Cline’s husband, Charlie Dick, and their son and daughter, Randy Dick and Julie Fudge.

For more details see Wednesday’s Winchester Star.

This picture from 1957 is of Patsy standing on the porch of a house on South Kent Street in Winchester. It is part of the exhibit that will run at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.
