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

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.

Make sure to take the tour and then get some cheese at the Cheese Factory and drink a Moxie, favorite drink of Coolidge. There is a small charge for a tour of the house, but it is worth it to take a guided tour

The historic site is well kept, informative, and a pleasure to tour. The mix of shops, antiques, and history kept us busy for hours! We had a great day and would visit again!

This was very nicely done in maintaining President Coolidge's birth place, boyhood home and grave site. It is maintained by the state of Vermont with wonderful manicured grounds. All of the building on the property are original with original furniture. I would recommend it.

This stop was lower on our list, you know if there’s time we might visit and I’m glad we stopped. This is great place to learn about Calvin Coolidge. Unlike other reviewers we didn’t take a tour—none were offered while we were there. We did experience lunch at the WIlder House and agree it was very good, excellent soup, sandwiches... More

We expected to stop here for maybe 30 minutes see something and then take off. However there is a lot more to this little town then we had expected. It's very neat, and very well preserved. You really feel like you're back in the 20th century. There is a little tour that a guide takes you on and you can... More
