From Histoic Rugby website: What Is Rugby? We're a Victorian English village, established in 1880, on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee. Created as a utopian community, Rugby has a rich history that we share with visitors from around the world. What We Offer Historic Rugby offers tours of our historic buildings, plus lodging, shops, and dining. We are also connected to a National Park and State Natural Area, with hiking trails ranging from easy to challenging.
