The Thomas Hughes Library in Rugby, Tenn., (pop. 70) houses probably the greatest collection of Victorian literature in America. Hughes, a British author and statesman, founded the town in 1880 as a cooperative, class-free society where Britain’s young noblemen could prosper. About 20 of the original Victorian buildings still stand.
