The Tusculum College Archives works within the Museum Studies Program to collect, preserve and make available the records from the oldest college in Tennessee. Our collections include personal artifacts of the Johnson family; Andrew Johnson's personal library; and the home and records of the Doak family, an early pioneer family featuring many Presbyterian ministers. Rev. Samuel W. Doak founded Tusculum College in 1818, and his descendants continue to be involved with the college. We also collect educational and religious artifacts and documents from Northeast Tennessee. Selected artifacts from the collections are on exhibit in the museum. The archives and museums are open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. Open for for special events, weekends, and evenings as announced or by appointment. Closed for all Tusculum College holidays. It is strongly advised that anyone planning a visit contact the archives or museums in advance.
