Route 100A in Plymouth Notch

Plymouth Notch Vermont
Travel along Route 100A in Plymouth Notch, Vermont and you’ll come across the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site. Plymouth Notch is where President Coolidge was born, assumed the presidency, and governed the country for a brief time in the summer of 1924 during his term (1923-1929).
Across from the village and east of Route 100A are steep hillsides and rolling meadows. I occasionally take this route in the summer and fall to admire the landscape. But on a recent winter afternoon, it looked more beautiful than ever.

    Hi Erica, It is my understanding that Silent Cal was President from 1923 to 1929.

    Hi Steve, you are right. What I was saying was that he governed from his home in Plymouth Notch during the summer of 1924. But I wasn’t very clear, so I clarified my wording. Thanks for pointing this out!

    I have never been there. One time I did stop and look around from the road, but I have never been on the grounds.
