Tour President Calvin Coolidge Historic Homestead Plymouth Notch Vermont

Calvin Coolidge was born 1872 across the street from the homestead in a house attached to his fathers general store at Plymouth Notch, Plymouth, VT. The homestead was purchased four years later by Calvin’s father Colonel John Coolidge in which he repaired and added a few additions to this one and a half story farmhouse connected to the barn and was a typical New England style set up with the big house, little house, back house and barn. President Coolidge would live in this house until he went away to college 1887 -1895.

On August 3, 1923 Calvin Coolidge was inaugurated the 30th President of the United States. In the following years he would return to the homestead for vacations. He would reside in Northampton until his sudden death at the age of 60 in 1933. The homestead was willed to his only surviving son, John and at his mothers suggestion he donated the house complete with furnishings to the State of Vermont, who in turn opened it to the public. The appearance today is almost the same as the night of the inauguration. President Coolidge, his wife Grace and their two sons, Calvin Jr and John rest at the Notch Cemetery with four generations of his family.

The tour for this State Historic Site is open daily from May to October 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m… and it’s great to wander around this 19th century village even in the winter! Only a little over an hour from Pond Mountain Inn.
