“Worth the visit if you're in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The tour through the house is very informational and interesting. They have a few authentic items in the house, but a lot is donated replicas. The house still has that old wood 1950s smell which really helps create the atmosphere. Every little piece has a story that the guide person is welcome to share and is helpful with any questions. If you enjoy Patsy Cline at all then you'll enjoy walking through this piece of history.

There is no available access for wheelchairs or people that have trouble with stairs but they do have a book you can look at while the tour continues upstairs.

“Essence of Patsy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

if you're a Patsy fan, as we are, this is a must. if you're not a Patsy fan if eel sorry for you.

the house which is a converted log cabin from the 18th century, has been meticulously restored to the 50's when Patsy lived there with her mother and younger brother and sister. the docent, whose aunt was an early booking agent for Patsy, provided lots of personal details. this is a very intimate experience.

“Really good history of the singer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

The ladies who gave us the tour were very well informed and mad this talented singers childhood and early career come to life. Patsy endured a lot of hardships and so did her mother to get her in the country music elite. Don't miss this place.

“great tour guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

A small house where Patsy lived in her teens and early 20s. A must see if you are a Patsy fan and are in the area. A little house but the tour guides are so informed and dedicated that you get a 45 minute enjoyable tour.

“A Fan's "Must-Do"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

A non-descript little white house on a street of similar homes, but when you enter the front door, you're in a time warp. Period furnishings, family photos, the low ceilings, everything seems so sparse and small - the way things were back then - but then you realize that you're walking around the same space as Patsy Cline. I just found it pretty cool and the tour guides were so nice and welcoming. Loved it!
