We've been to many presidential sites, but this particular site authentically displays the simple life of Calvin Coolidge, one of our underrated presidents. Starting at the simple 2 room visitor center, you get a brief lesson on the man who unexpectedly became president upon the death of President Harding. When you step out of the visitor's center you are transported... More

Let's be honest, Calvin Coolidge isn't on anyone's top ten list of great presidents. He presided over what proved to be a disastrous fiscal policy, and his most famous quote is two words long. Still, when I saw the sign on the road indicating that there was an historic site, I couldn't help myself. I didn't even know he was... More

Step back in time at Plymouth Notch, VT and visit the various buildings where President Coolidge was born and raised. The visitor center has some amazing displays - don't miss Mrs. Coolidge's gowns! But the general store, barn, church, house, and cheese factory let you see life in a different time. I recommend the guided tour to get the most... More

It was a treat to visit Calvin Coolidge's hometown and to be able to see an authentic representation of his life. Unlike many historic sights, this site was authentic. It helped that many of the possessions remained in the family until they were given to the state of Vermont. To me, it was truly amazing to be able to see... More

The homestead is very, very well maintained. Grass cut, displays up to date. Docents are VERY knowledgeable. Learned so much about Calvin Coolidge and his family. Is a must for any history buff. Great picnic areas to complete the day,

To think that the tiniest of Vermont towns, Plymouth Notch, could produce a President of the United States is amazing. That he chose Plymouth Notch as the site of his Inauguration and visited there frequently during his presidency is even MORE amazing! This attraction is simple and genuine country...it is well-worth a little detour from whatever else you have planned... More

There is some walking but not a lot. The store and Coolidge's "Vermont White House" was is a great contrast to what Presidents enjoy today. The lady giving the tour had lived in this very small town for some years so it was sort of personal. I enjoyed it very much.

It was interesting to walk around the home of President Calvin Coolidge and to see where he grew up. I am not a history buff so I did not pay the admission fee but was nice to visit and experience.

This is a significant historical site: a President was sworn in at the house in 1923. This is one of a very few places outside Washington, DC where this has happened. Calvin Coolidge's family home is preserved. When President Harding died, Coolidge was sworn in at the house. The farm nearby where Coolidge was born is also here. There is... More

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
