(Staunton) Eavers Classic Cars and Collectibles Museum 

Eavers Classic Cars and Collectibles Museum offers a wide array of classic automobiles from 50's Corvettes to Elvis Presley's last Cadillac. Each automotive example is in pristine condition and set to a background that will put you right back in the muscle car era. In addition to the various period collectibles, the Eavers Museum has put together a genuine "turn of the century" country store for full viewing. Upon entering Weaver's Mercantile you'll take a step back in time to an area country store with all genuine artifacts. Throughout the year, the Eavers will hold various "cruise-in's" and car shows, so you never know what you might run into. Events will be posted on this web site regularly! So check the events section to plan a trip during one of these events or just stop by and check us out any day of the week from 9 A.M. to 6 P.M.
