Cemetery Lantern Tour

Historic Rugby
Event Location: 
Historic Rugby, 5517 Rugby Hwy, Robbins, TN 37852
When: 
Saturday, September 16, 2017 - 6:00pm

Each fall, Historic Rugby residents gather in the village’s Laurel Dale Cemetery to share the stories of some of Rugby’s most colorful characters of the last 135 years. Hear in her own words from the widow left to complete construction of Rugby’s library. There’s also the lady who rode a white horse, came to Rugby to dance and remained for 50 years. Listen to a lad who grew up here in the 1885-1900 years and find out how he helped honor Queen Victoria in British-founded Rugby. Those and others now dearly departed tell their tales. They speak for themselves in words taken from letters, diaries, newspaper accounts and interviews.

The event begins at 6:00 pm Eastern (5:00 Central). Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children 12 and under, and because of the popularity of this event, reservations are recommended. Call 423-628-2441 to reserve or for lodging information. Tickets may be ordered online at http://www.historicrugby.org.
