WINCHESTER, Va. (AP) — If you're crazy for Patsy Cline, you can live in her old house for just $625 a month.

Sweet Dreams for Patsy, a limited liability corporation, has bought the house where the country singer lived on and off during the 1940s and '50s with the goal of preserving it. The 1,716 square-foot house, built in 1900, is assessed at $51,800.

The corporation is controlled by The Adams Cos., whose president, Kevin D. Adams, is a board member of Celebrating Patsy Cline Inc., a Winchester group dedicated to building a museum in honor of Cline, who died in a plane crash in 1963.

Mel Dick, general manager of the Always Patsy Cline Fan Club and Cline's brother-in-law, said, ``They purchased the house for all the right reasons.''
