We stopped here as a rest stop on a trip further north but wound up staying much longer. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the Coolidge family. The grounds are beautifully preserved.

Great spot to learn about the 30th President of the United States. Easy walking and exploring. Most buildings open for a self tour. 2 buildings require a guide, which is part of your entrance to the museum. Take the time to watch the movie in the main building. Good for kids and adults.recommended! Was beautiful in the summer.

The small town of Plymouth Notch has been preserved as it was when Calvin Coolidge was born, grew up and took the oath of Office when he became President. The village has all original structures, homes, barns, tools, furniture and artifacts. The museum and educational center is very informative and interactive. Calvin Coolidge's Father, John, built a lot of the... More

We went camping nearby at Coolidge State Park and decided to swing by the Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site. The weather was beautiful and the scenery around the actual house and village we breathtaking. We were unable to take the tours, however, it is free to roam around the village streets (with a dog as long as you clean up... More

I've waited almost 30 years to visit Coolidge's homestead and grave. It was well worth it. It was amazing to be in the same little village that he was born in and across the street is where he took the Oath of Office, from his own father, to become the President of the United States. It was just amazing to... More

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.

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.
