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.

This is a nice place to visit and at first I thought it had reasonable admission fees. I changed my mind though when I realized that a number of attractions you can get into without paying anything and that some of the buildings you could not go into even with a wrist band. I don't know if that was because... More

I enjoyed this site tremendously. I had no idea that it would be so interesting. It is hard imagine that a president of the United States came from such a rural area.

Very rural, nice atmosphere. There is a small museum at the visitors center, then you go outside for a walk around the grounds and other buildings. There is a country store, a barn with old wagons, sleighs, and farm equipment. You could just picture the President sitting on the porch of their house. There is a cheese factory with gourmet...

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
