Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site

Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site

The Coolidge Homestead is an important component of the activities of the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation. It is also the centerpiece of the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site in Plymouth. The house was the setting for many significant events that affected the life and times of Calvin Coolidge. He moved there when he was four.

In addition to the homestead, visitors may tour the Plymouth Cheese Factory - established by the President's father - and sample the granular curd cheese produced there.

Other buildings open to the public include the Cilley General Store, the Post Office, the Wilder Restaurant (serving lunch), the church, several barns displaying farming tools of the era, the dance hall that served as the Summer White House, and the home where the future President was born.

We hope you enjoy our work.
