Dr. Noll has extensively expanded the number of events at the Doak House Museum in the last few years and added new crops on that land. He has also played a key role in creating trails in the wooded areas adjacent to the Doak House that provide an excellent recreational venue for Tusculum family members and the community. Outside the classroom, Dr. Noll serves on the Board of Trustees for Rocky Mount State Historic Site in Piney Flats, Tennessee, and previously served on the board of directors for the Dickson-Williams Mansion in Greeneville, Tennessee.
