The Rugby house is one of Charlottesville's individually protected properties, meaning any exterior changes or potential demolition would have to be approved by the Board of Architectural Review. The house is located at 908 Cottage Lane.
The house, which was one of the first to be built on Rugby Road, was constructed in the middle of the 19th century by Andrew J. Brown and has been modified several times. At one point, is was used as school for boys. One prominent resident was Major General Thomas L. Rosser, C.S.A, who once served as Charlottesville's postmaster.
