Great little museum tucked behind Grove Park Inn-you'll have to enter the hotel grounds to get in. A great collection of antique domestic autos-with the exception of a lone MG-that is in pretty good condition. Nice guy with a wealth of history on site. Well worth a detour and 30-40 minutes of time. And free, but a donation would be in order.

We stopped by to see the handmade furniture. Every piece was so beautiful. Very expensive but very lovely. There is also pottery, jewelry and glass items for sale.

The items in this gallery are the highest quality you'll find anywhere. All are of very high quality and most of very original design. If you can't afford this quality of work, you'll still enjoy it like a visit to a museum.

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.

Hours: April-December.
Monday-Saturday 10:00-5:00.
Sunday. 11:00-5:00/.


Winter Hours;

January-March- Closed.

No admission.

I recommend a visit.

So many unique items from pottery to jewelry to wood furniture and wall hangings. Something for everyone to browse through and if one desires purchase.
