Do not miss the Fourth of July parade and wreath laying at the Presidents grave. The grounds are beautiful, people friendly.and the whole day is great for a family picnic. Learning about Coolidge is a real eye opener for anyone who appreciates American History

My goal of reading the lives of all of our presidents has brought me to President Calvine Coolidge. This site is an excellent place to learn about Calvins' early life in Plymouth Notch. The Coolidge Museum and Education Center located on the site serves as the main entrance to the historic site which contains the General Store that Coolidge's father... More

Pros: Tour, Length, knowledgeable and informative guides, free parking, large site Cons: outside (you wouldn't want to do this in bad weather), not as interesting as other historic sites I've visited Not being from the US, my knowledge about past presidents is limited to begin with. This however did not stop me from enjoying this historic site. To begin, I... More

Some former presidents have a library. Calvin Coolidge has a whole village. It is a unique to have a president's birth place and swearing in place a few yards from each other. It is even more unique for a president to be sworn in by his father in his childhood home as Calvin was. It was an amazing experience to... More

I am a fan of history and I very much enjoyed my visit to this site. I think really anyone would have a good time exploring the town. Make sure to check out the museum in the visitor center, its small just one room, but it's very well done with lots of touch screens where you can watch old film... More

We love this site, have been coming for years and the sense of peace, the history and the beauty make it my favorite! Knowledgeable docents. You can wander the village at no charge if you don't have time to spend. You will see the Presidents birthplace and the bed he was born in. The homestead is furnished as it was... More

This is the birthplace and childhood home of Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the United States. It has its own Post Office, General Store, Wilder House Restaurant, Church, and Cheese Factory. The Homestead is where Coolidge was sworn in as President. You can see the room still intact with the original Bible used for the Swearing In. The Summer... More

We enjoyed walking through the village, seeing President Coolidge's homes and the town he lived in as a boy. The museum regarding his presidency was extremely interesting. It is an absolutely beautiful property and I recommend you visit if you are in Vermont during the summer and fall months.

A small village that is a working town with even a post office, yet, Calvin Coolidge lived there. The Coolidge home is there waiting for you to walk thru, fully furnished. Definitely worth the short picturesque ride as well.
