Historic Rugby opens its fall season of events by welcoming visitors to homes and historic buildings not usually seen by the public. On Saturday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., visitors will be able to tour more than 20 buildings in the village including both new homes in the historic district and historic private homes.
“This is a rare opportunity for our visitors to get a peek inside some very special and beautiful homes and enjoy an early fall day in the village,” said Mike Harris, Historic Rugby’s executive director.
Ingleside, Oak Lodge, and Ruralia, homes built by the original colonists, will be opened for tour this year. Also, a special visit to Uffington House, home of Madame Hughes, will be available. For the first time, visitors will be able to tour all of Uffington House. Also on hand will be crafters in the Commissary Store and special live music in the café for lunch.
Admission is $12 for adults and $6 for K-12 students with groups of 12 or more adults admitted for $10 each.
