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 that Harry and his dealership had come to own over time, including a rare 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham and Asheville’s own 1921 American LaFrance fire truck. 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 allow us to maintain and preserve the vehicles in the collection. 

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

*The Antique Car Museum is closed January - March.

The museum is also closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.


Be sure to look up! Two enormous custom-made Roycroft chandeliers (circa 1918), designed by Karl Kipp - creator of some of the most sought-after metalwork of the Arts and Crafts movement - make this space well worth your visit. These chandeliers once hung in Fred Seely’s home, Overlook, a stone castle with a storied past, still standing just 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 finest handwoven wool fabric in the country, worn by U.S. presidents, first ladies and many American icons.
