Historic Rugby is 70 miles northwest of Knoxville on State Scenic Hwy. 52, adjoining the Big South Fork National Park. It was founded in 1880 by British author and social reformer Thomas Hughes as an agricultural Utopia. Today this award winning organization hosts 20 of the remaining 1880s buildings that are surrounded by a rugged, river gorge and natural state and national park lands. The museum village is open daily year-round, offering building tours, historic lodging, food service, museum store and special events and workshops.
