The Estes-Winn Antique Car Museum
A popular attraction on the Grovewood grounds is the Estes-Winn Antique Car Museum. Established in 1965 by Asheville businessman Harry Blomberg, the museum is home to several rare and vintage automobiles, as well as some original horse-drawn carriages and Asheville's own American LaFrance fire engine. The cars have been preserved in their mostly original and running condition.
The Estes-Winn Antique Car Museum is a non-profit organization. Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. Your contribution helps maintain the vehicles and the historic building which houses them.
