 In 2007, Carter Burton collaborated with internationally renowned exhibit designers Ralph Applebaum Associates to imagine what a museum would look like in downtown Winchester, VA. Celebrating Patsy Cline has purchased many of Patsy Cline’s belongings to protect them for use in a dedicated museum. They have been loaned to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley for a temporary exhibit and to raise awareness for the cause.
