We stopped on a road trip thru Vermont to check out the Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site. We started in the Museum and it was very interesting. We found out he was born and buried in Plymouth, VT. He took his oath of office administered by his Father at 2 AM in the house where he was born. This was... More

Original well maintained buildings including Coolidge's birthplace and the home he grew up in and took the oath of office. Picturesque in the fall. Other period buildings and equipment are on the grounds. Short film tells the Coolidge life story.

Tranquil historic site. Guided tour helps. Watch the movie. Gives perspective of history & Coolidge's upbringing and philosophy. The small complex is a step back in time. Grab a Moxie drink at the general store and just relax for a while.

I visited here this past October & the setting was absolutely breathtaking. This historic site was such a pleasant surprise as I was not expecting much. It is almost as if you have stepped back into time with the old church, cheese shop, general store, & so many other historic buildings. It took me back to the very small community... More

You might think you are lost when trying to find this place, but it is worth the drive. We arrived rather late in the day and did not get to spend as much time as we would have liked, but did get to briefly see everything. I think they recommend at least one hour for the self guided tour, but... More

The whole little area is stunning. I can see why Coolidge loved it and wished to return. If you can I recommend visiting in the fall, the colors were absolutely stunning. Definitely try some cheese while you're there!!

My husband and I visited the site in October. The movie and the whole site was wonderful! We have visited 26 presidential homes and this definitely ranks in our top five. No wonder President Coolidge returned here--so peaceful, serene and beautiful makes you realize what a humble man he was how living here formed his values. The cheese making process... More

After visiting Vt for many years we took the time to visit Plymouth Knoll, the birth place of President Coolidge and where he took the oath of office after the death of President Harding. The family home, 1924 Summer White House, the family Cheese Co still in operation, the general store the family owned, and an excellent museum are a... More

We have been trying to visit Presidential sites on our vacations. We stopped by here on our way to Bennington. Nice, peaceful place. Lots of original building that you can enter and view. Volunteers around to answer your questions. Nice easy-going place to visit.
