This is a charming historic site where one can not only learn about Silent Cal, but get a thorough and fascinating look at rural Vermont of the past through the meticulously preserved homes and barns of Coolidge's childhood.

Excellent visit to a president's home and village. We have a much better appreciation of his contribution to the people of the US.

Not only did we learn a lot about President Coolidge, we stepped back in time to the 1920s! The village and homes have been preserved just as they were at the time of his Presidency. A gorgeous spot in the heart of Vermont.

The little resturant as... More

Quite a large property, but I had an enjoyable time learning about this modest President. Entry fee is $7.00 and they do have film at the visitor's center you can view before the actual walking tour. There are also places you can walk to on your own. They even have a restaurant that makes homemade food open until 4:00 PM.... More

Friends who have been visiting Weston, VT for decades weren't aware of this wonderful historic spot. Calvin Coolidge's birthplace, the spot where he took the oat of office, cheese factory (still operating), and the Summer White House (above the general store!) are a few of the buildings open to the public in this small late 19th/early 20th century town.

We enjoy visiting Presidential birthplaces, homes, and libraries. This is a unique site in that it is so much more than a birthplace and homesite (although both are present and open). The state of Vermont has preserved several buildings in Plymouth Notch, which has a beautiful setting. We stopped in the visitor center to view the short film and there... More

The homestead is very interesting. Restored to be historically accurate. Be sure to take the side trip to the family cemetery. There are some beautiful historical headstones there. Recommend for adults.

By chance on the Garmin, and a scenic trip up the mountain, we arrived at the home of Calvin Coolidge. If ever there were a barn, carriage, home, or place I could have of my own, this would be the place. Not only was I impressed with the view, the history of Mr. Coolidge, and his family is extremely worthy... More
