NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — An antique car museum has gotten the OK to open in Newport.
The Newport Daily News reports that the city Zoning Board of Review on Monday approved a permit that will allow the museum to open in a well-known historic building on Bellevue Avenue near the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
Turner Scott, an attorney for the firm that owns the property, says they own at least 100 antique cars. The plan is to have 14 cars on display at the museum at any given time.
The building is in the Bellevue Avenue National Historic Landmark District. It was designed by New York architect Bruce Price, who also designed the famous Château Frontenac in Quebec City.
The building is currently being renovated and restored.
