The RM Brooks General Store was completed in the early 1920s.  In the middle part of the 20th century the store also served as the post office for the community of Rugby and had a zip code of  37733 According to the wooden sign above the front door.  The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 14, 1992

I went to Rugby for the first time back in December of 2011.   When I was there in 2011 the store was closed and locked up.

Thankfully when I was back through there last week, the store had been reopened and apparently had been reopened by a fourth general granddaughter and family of the original proprietors in 2014.
