This museum is attached to the Groovewood Gallery Museum. It's an one room museum about the early 1900's fabric industry of the Biltmore Industries owned by George Vanderbuilt.
A visiter wil encounter different types of machinery for turning cotton/wool into clothing. Some machines are early Scotttish Flyshutter loom, a set of machines for the loom, a Bobbin thread length counter & a spinning wheel. Also are weight scales, a 1917 time clock, a Biltmore early 1900's cash register, selves of design weaving fabric-from the 20's up to the 70's. There are woman's dress suits and vjackets.
If a visitor wants to learn about the 1900's fabris industry, this museum is a good place to start. A visit probably will last only 30 minutes. The woman over looking the museum was very knowledgeable about all the machinery and answered & explained all my questions. She explained that most wool came fromk Scotland, New Zealand & Australia. The Estes-Winn Antique Car Museum is about 30 yards away.
I recommend a visit.
