Rugby, TN Printing Works

Rugby, TN Printing Works

Rugby is a small community along the Cumberland Plateau in Morgan County, founded by British Immigrants in 1880. The Rugby Colony was designed to be a utopian community, but the design failed in less than a decade. Still a few townspeople and their descendants lived in the area over the next several decades. In the 1960s, residents, friends and descendants of Rugby began restoring the original design and layout of the community, preserving surviving structures and reconstructing others.

The Rugby Print shop is not an original building in Rugby, but since it has a comparable design and similar age it was moved here. The print shop was originally in the nearby town of Deer Lodge in 1887 and was moved here in 1978. for more info: www.historicrugby.org/featured-volunteers-carolyn-and-jul...
