Antique Car Museum

The Antique Car Museum at Grovewood Village was established in 1966 by Harry Blomberg, founder of Harry's on the Hill - the oldest family-owned car dealership in Asheville, North Carolina. The museum is home to several vintage automobiles, including a rare 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham and Asheville’s own American LaFrance fire engine. All cars are in running condition. Also on display are 4 horse-drawn vehicles and an authentic moonshine still.

Admission to the museum is free, but donations are greatly appreciated and help us maintain the vehicles and the historic building which houses them.

Museum Hours*
Monday - Saturday: 10am – 5:30pm
Sunday: 11am - 5pm

*The Antique Car Museum is closed January – March.


Look up! Two enormous custom-made Roycroft chandeliers (circa 1918), inscribed with Shakespeare quotes, make this space worth your visit. They once hung in Fred Seely’s home, Overlook, a stone castle still standing a few miles from here.

Did you know?  Before there were cars here, there were looms. This building, constructed in 1923, originally housed Biltmore Industries' weaving shop and had a total of 40 looms in steady operation, producing bolts of some of the highest quality homespun fabric in the country, worn by U.S. presidents, first ladies and many American icons.
