I visited the Patsy Cline House with my wife, my 92-year-old mother, and 20-something son recently, and I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. The tour consisted of an interesting commentary by a tour guide as he led us around the house, pausing room by room to describe the characteristics and furnishings of the room itself, and its significance in the life of Patsy and her mother. Some of the articles and furnishings were originals, and some replicas, since some of the originals are in the Shenandoah Museum, which has climate controlled display areas to prevent deterioration. The tour lasted about an hour. The guide was well informed, interesting, and friendly, and always willing to answer questions. Even my son, who isn’t exactly a big Patsy Cline fan, seemed engaged. In our tour, there were only the 4 of us, but I understand that sometimes whole tour busloads of people come by. The bottom floor is equipped with a wheelchair ramp, but to reach the upstairs requires ascending a steep staircase, so is not accessible for wheelchairs. However, for my mother (who is not in a wheelchair, but cannot climb stairs well), the guide provided a nice book to look at while the rest of us were upstairs, which had pictures and the story of the upstairs area (which was just a bedroom). There apparently is only one tour guide, and the tours run on a regular schedule, not on demand, so be sure to check the schedule on their website (http://www.celebratingpatsycline.org/celebrating-patsy-cline-the-historic-house.aspx) before showing up. But all in all, this was a very nice tour, well worth the $8 price ($6 for seniors), and I would encourage any Patsy Cline fans in the vicinity of Winchester to take advantage of this opportunity.
