Patsy Cline Historic House Accepting Volunteer Docents

Patsy Cline Historic HouseThe Patsy Cline Historic House is looking for volunteer docents to provide visitors an introduction and opportunity to explore the home.  Docents will receive extensive training in Patsy Cline’s history, the house’s background, artifacts on exhibit, and public speaking skills.

Located at 608 South Kent Street, the house is where Cline lived with her family from 1948 to 1957, years which proved to be decisive for the Country music superstar’s early career.  Once open, the house will be the only authentic exhibit dedicated to Cline, who was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1973.

 

This will be the perfect chance for Patsy enthusiasts to get involved with the project. If you’d like to volunteer at the Patsy Cline Historic House, contact Executive Director Judy Sue Huyett-Kempf at 540-662-5555 or by email.
