The site is where President Coolidge was born and sworn in as the 30th President. It shows the simplicity of life at the turn of the century and is well maintained. Can spend a couple of hours just wondering around, helped by the guides on hand. Well recommended.

The location is so peaceful and quaint. We learned more about the kind of person he was after seeing how he lived as a young man

My husband and I have made a challenge to visit as many President's homes and Presidential Libraries as possible mixed with our regular travels. Calvin Coolidge's home was outstanding. The work that has gone into preserving the original homestead is amazing. The view in Plymouth Vermont is breathtaking and serene. I loved knowing the history behind the president. The idea... More

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
