Winchester, VA

Two weeks ago we took a little trip to Winchester, VA, birthplace of Patsy Cline. After traveling down Patsy Cline memorial highway, we arrived at a small, nondescript graveyard. Patsy's grave would have been all but anonymous--she's buried under her married name, Virginia Dick,--were it not for the wreath and card someone had left on Patsy's birthday. However, in another part of the graveyard was erected a memorial bell tower with Patsy's name on it.
The town of Winchester itself made little mention of Patsy Cline, although a Patsy Cline museum is slated to open next year and one drug store where she worked had a cardboard cut out of her in the window.
