Private Paranormal Investigation with Lodging

Now Offering Private Paranormal Investigations With Overnight Lodging 

The village of Rugby, established in the 1880s, is a living community and a historic site that is preserving the story of the English families who attempted a cooperative enterprise on the Cumberland Plateau. History, Highways, and Haunts, LLC has partnered with Historic Rugby, Inc. to offer visitors “after dark” tours of this historic location.
