Founded in 1794, this is Tennessee’s oldest college, the nation’s 28th oldest, and the oldest co-ed Presbyterian-affiliated school in the world. Samuel W. Doak, son of Presbyterian minister and Washington College Academy founder Samuel Doak, started this 140-acrecampus, later named Tusculum College. During the Civil War, its buildings served as barracks for soldiers. Today, this private college has around 1,500 students with a regional center in Knoxville and satellite campuses across East Tennessee.
