Have you ever wondered which towns in America resemble the UK the most? Some of the towns in the U.S. have citizens who are direct descendants of the colonists, and some have started attracting British just recently. Either way, in these towns you can find British products in the stores, and cricket competitions are nothing unusual. These are the 10 most British towns in the U.S.
1. Knoxville, Tennessee
After the American Civil War, 104 Welsh families moved to Knoxville, Tennessee from Pennsylvania. They mostly worked in a rolling mill. Of the Iron Works where these Welsh families worked, only the structure that now houses the restaurant called The Foundry survives.
The immigrants built their own Congregational Church and established themselves in Knoxville. Since then, they have opened many other businesses and companies such as furniture companies, roofing companies and others. There are more than 250 families living in Knoxville currently and they celebrate St. David’s Day, Welsh patron saint, every year to honor their ancestry and tradition.
