Historic Site
“The Coolidge Homestead, also known as Calvin Coolidge Homestead District or President Calvin Coolidge State Historical Site, was the childhood home of the 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge and the place where he took the presidential oath of office Although he spent most of his adult life in Northampton, Massachusetts, Coolidge often returned to the old homestead to visit his family. He never lost his fondness for Vermont and its people. Famous for his honesty, thrift, and taciturnity, “Silent Cal” restored confidence in government after the Harding scandals and symbolized stability during a period of rapid, disorienting social change. The Calvin Coolidge Homestead District at Plymouth Notch preserves many of the historic buildings that Coolidge knew in his youth: his birthplace, his boyhood home, the church that he attended, the homes of relatives and family friends, and the hall above his father’s old store, which he used as his office during the summer of 1924 and others. Coolidge and his wife lie amid seven generations of Coolidges in the town cemetery.”

“Very nice place to spend a few hours seeing where a former President grew up and lived a major part of his life. STep back in time and explore this interesting historical site and his final resting place nearby. ”
