My wife and daughters (5 and 7) all had a great time. The buildings are all very well kept and have interesting displays setup that are loaded with history. It is located in a beautiful area not far from Okemo. You'll be treated to a nice drive down Rt 100 if you're coming from the Ludlow area. There is a... More

An extremely interesting site which gives a very good feel of what it must have been like in Calvin Coolidge's time

The State of Vermont has done a beautiful job keeping this town somewhat like it was in Coolidge's time while still allowing it to function as an actual hamlet. The museum/visitors center is relatively new and features a gift shop, two display rooms, one with many interactive displays. There's even a video about his life and presidency. With your paid...

The village of Plymouth Notch, Vermont is restored to the time Calvin Coolidge was president. It is a very interesting and well managed place to gain an insight into U S Presidential history.

Nestled on the picturesque Vermont mountains' the village is a step back in time. Wheelchair accessible. Clean. Ample parking. Easy to walk around the village. Saw Calvin Coolidge's birthplace as well as the home in which he was sworn in as President. The barn museum is filled with antique carriages and farm implements. Quite interesting. The visitor's center is friendly,... More

Wiith so many items that he used and were familiar with, not ones that were similar, but the real ones. Worth the stop. There is a diner on the... More

The Visitor's Center is very nice and informative. The buildings and tour were okay. Probably this would be a better place if you were really interested in Coolidge. The cheese factory located in the park was a bit disappointing as it was very small.

You will need to plan for a couple of hours to get around and see all the different historic buildings. You first have the Education Center and Museum to go through, then watch a movie, and then head out to see all the buildings. There is so much to see... The General Store, where you can grab a moxie (if... More

We were on our driving vacation in VT, June 2014, heading towards Brattleboro, on the 100A route south. We had read about Plymouth Notch, and decided to take a look/stop at the State Historic Site. What a nice place this is. We parked at the museum and went and had a look around. $8 per adult to get in. Really... More

A tour of Coolidge's home and adjacent buildings gives you a feel for small-town Vermont life in the early 20th century, as the buildings and furnishings are authentic originals. The museum has many photos and documents from the president's life.
