Plymouth is a Vermont treasure. President Calvin Coolidge said of Vermont in 1928, “Vermont is a state I love. I could not look upon the peaks of Ascutney, Killington, Mansfield, and Equinox without being moved in a way that no other scene could move me.”
Located along scenic Routes 100 & 100A, Plymouth, Vermont is comprised of two small villages, Plymouth and Plymouth Notch, the home of President Calvin Coolidge.
Historic Plymouth Notch
There is a pace, a character, and a pastoral richness that all converge in this wild and beautiful Vermont landscape. This small hill town remains virtually unchanged since 1923, when in the old family homestead, Calvin Coolidge was sworn in as the 30th President of the United States.
Historic Plymouth Notch is carefully preserved. The village church, general store, cheese factory, and community dance hall that served as the 1924 Summer White House, all offer visitors a glimpse of a gentler time, with a touch of modern comfort and hospitality to make your Vermont visit effortless!
Just down the road is the Coolidge State Forest with seasonal campsites and trails that rise to prominent hills overlooking the breathtaking valley and the Coolidge Mountain range in the distance. In the heat of the summer, be sure to spend some time at Camp Plymouth State Park on beautiful Echo Lake, where you can swim, rent boats, play horseshoes or volleyball, or take advantage of their extensive playground and four-season amenities. You can also check out the historic Plymouth School which will provide you with the historic preservation information and activities.
