http://historicsites.vermont.gov/directory/coolidge/tour_homestead Visit the home of President Calvin Coolidge and see the room where he was sworn into office by his father after President Harding died. While you are in Plymouth make sure to visit the Plymouth Cheese store and sample the Cheddar sage cheese (goes great with a piece of apple pie).

If you don't know about the only Vermont-born President who was actually sworn in by his father, you need to visit and find out.

So, they bought a village, formerly known as Plymouth Notch, where 30th President of USA was born, raised and buried with 7 generations of Coolidges. Nice new visitor center, but the star is the village, some 7-8 buildings, with exquisite church interior. The cheese factory has been in operation for more than 100 years, and there is lunch (soup/sandwiches &... More

We toured through the little village of Plymouth Notch and experienced an interactive historic overview of Calvin Coolidge's homestead, his private life and presidency. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic docents were on hand to answer questions. Wander the lovely grounds to see the original post office, General Store, 1840's Church and more. Meander up the street a few paces and visit the... More

What a place to step back in time! Very beautiful setting. Easy to imagine what life was like in rural Vermont a 100 years ago. The buildings are authentic and the museum pieces are pristine. The explanations of Coolidge's life are very complete. Would recommend this site to any history buff. The photo's and film of the President pitching hay... More

This gives a view of the isolated Vermont community where Calvin Coolidge was born, grew up, was sworn into office and is buried with six other generations of Coolidges. The visitor center has a short introductory video, and then you can walk into the general store and home where he was born, and even see the bed he was born... More

We made an unplanned stop by the Calvin Cooledge Homestead on one of our routes touring Vermont and we were glad we did. The grounds are pristine, the guides were well informed and we really learned things about President Coolidge that we didn't know. I highly recommend stopping here if you are in the area.

Loved it. Had lunch at the restaurant there, great sandwich and very friendly staff. Toured the grounds. This is like a little town, very neat. Part of it has a tour guide, rest is self guided. Scenic too.

Except what is sold in the general store, that is up-to-date artisian craftsmanship (which I think cheapens the whole experience - but I get it). I haven't been to the homestead for years and it is still as I remember it. The buildings, grounds, inside/outside, everything is so very well preserved. You can spend all day if you really want...
