What does your donation of money or time help achieve for Historic Rugby?

Your gift of making a financial contribution, becoming a member, or spending time volunteering for us can make a world of difference to our non-profit. Historic Rugby honors the past and all those who have passed across its threshold, but it lives NOW for its extended family of members, supporters, donors, residents and friends.

Our aim is to stay a healthy, relevant organization for those who have yet to discover the fascinating history, charming buildings and natural beauty of this little Victorian village on the Cumberland Plateau. Historic Rugby’s Board members, staff, members and volunteers take their responsibility as stewards of Rugby seriously and are committed to a successful future.

Help us continue our mission of preserving, restoring and interpreting this special place. And help make someone’s eyes light up when they visit Historic Rugby.
