The Doak House Museum is located within the Historic Tusculum College, which is the oldest college in Tennessee and the 23rd oldest operating college in the United States. It is also the oldest co-educational college that is related to the Presbyterian Church.

Reverend Samuel Witherspoon, one of the founders of the Tusculum Academy, built a current home on the site. After a series of name changes, mergers, and transfers, the Doak descendants continued to reside the house from 1830?s to 1970?s before it was donated to Tusculum College. The Green County Heritage Trust, a local preservation group, became in charge of the home?s restoration with the help of a grant from the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration.

Today, the Doak House Museum is visited by 10,000 school children annually because of its educational programs and other learning experiences. It contains college related artifacts, Doak family artifacts, religious artifacts, and many others.
