This is a beautifully preserved area. You can pay a fee to enter all buildings or just walk around for free, with access to to the cheese factory and gift shops. Would be of more interest to those familiar with this era, which we are not. Not suggested for small children. A picturesque drive from Barnard through small towns on... More

I loved that they preserved the building in the village. Two houses the family lived in, a barn, general store still operating, a church, the cheese makers still using an 1800s recipe. Amazing that all of the artifacts in the Coolidge home actually belonged to the family.

Come in the fall to enjoy the beautiful foliage. A really good family destination. A great learning experience. Camp at Calvin Coolidge State Park. Your tent or their lean to its a quite relaxing experience. Some great views from the campground.

We decided that today's "something" would be touring the Coolidge Homestead. You start at the visitors center where you are introduced to the Coolidge legacy through a video. Not to be missed is the terrific interactive museum off the movie room. The small village appears almost exactly as it did on the night of his inauguration. As Vice President, upon... More

They've built a fine new museum but the real attraction is teh guided tour through what was the original village where Coolidge was born and lived... his first home, second home and summer white house, his father's store and work shed, the cheese factory and church. The guide is pleasant and knowledgeable.

This State run Historic site has the task of preserving the buildings associated with President Coolidge's younger days including birth, boyhood home and the home he was sworn into office of the President of the United States when Harding died. A bit of a hill, what is not in Vermont, from the overview building up to the barns, stores, church... More

As a U.S. History teacher, I try to stop at historical places while on vacation. I was up in Manchester, Vermont and chose to drive the 45 minutes or so to Calvin Coolidge's Birthplace. Didn't know what to expect, but it exceeded any expectations I have. It is a cute town preserved to the 1920s. And the cheese factory is... More

Mostly stopped for the Plymouth Artesan Cheese (part of the VT cheese tour), and were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful little cluster of houses, barns, church in an absolutely idylic setting - well worth a stop, especially to learn about Calvin Coolidge and his roots in this wonderful place.

We didn't intent to stop at President Coolidge's birthplace and home, but we are glad we did. The area has been meticulously preserved so many of the buildings and much of the area appear as they did years ago. A great place to take kids and the tour on the hour is worth the wait.
