Run by the State of VT, This site is a very well preserved piece of Life in the1890s. Actual buildings are still in place and artifacts and memorabilia are still as they were in the period. Guides are very knowledgable and don't lead or follow you around. Whether you want to visit for a half hour or two hours you... More

My wife and I visited the area while returning from a night in Mendon, VT. Although I grew up in Vermont, I had never visited the Coolidge homestead. The village is on Route 100A, off Route 100. Route 100 is always a gorgeous drive and the road through Plymouth Notch to the village is equally scenic. The visitor center is... More

It's a short drive from Woodstock, easy to get to. Very educational, we didn't really know a lot about this president but now we do. Short film starts things off and then you can walk through the tiny town to see many structures and his birthplace. Do not miss the Plymouth cheese factory (part of the tour), they produce some...

A drive through the countryside brings you to this peaceful gem in the mountains of Vermont. Visit the country store and cheese factory. Tour the birthplace where Calvin Coolidge was born and the Coolidge homestead where he took the oath of office to become President following death of Warren Harding. The visitor center offers an introductory video and an exhibit... More

This was a great visit. The films and walk through the homestead, general store, wilder barns and church were educational and informative, I really wanted to see the cheese store but 20 kids on a trip took over the store and we were unable to see anything.

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
