First Presbyterian Church, the parent church of Tusculum College, was founded in 1780, the first church in Greeneville and one of the first in Tennessee. Rev. Samuel Doak, who later established Tusculum Academy (1818), preached the first services. Rev. Hezekiah Balch, founder of Greeneville College (1794), became the first settled minister. The current minister, Dr. Daniel Donaldson, is a member of the Tusculum College Board of Trustees.
