One of the best parts of the Folk and Blues Festival, beyond all the great music, is its location. Plymouth, VT is home to Plymouth Notch and The President Calvin Coolidge Homestead.
Calvin Coolidge, our nation’s 30th president, was born right here in Plymouth Notch in 1872. The village was the site of his 1923 presidential swearing-in ceremony, and also home to his 1924 Summer White House.
The festival’s sensible afternoon hours provide a perfect opportunity for exploring the area and all it has to offer. Highly recommended.
This historic Vermont village and presidential birthplace, with 13 original buildings on over 600 acres, is one of the best preserved in the nation. Visitors to Plymouth Notch will see Calvin Coolidge’s birthplace much as it was during his life. The Coolidge homestead is here, along with the homes of their neighbors, a general store, one-room schoolhouse, church, Summer White House, and more. You can even visit the President’s grave, located in the Plymouth cemetery.
The Plymouth Cheese Factory
One of the most popular attractions in Plymouth is the Plymouth Cheese Factory.
John Coolidge, Calvin Coolidge’s father, started the Plymouth Cheese Factory in 1890. The factory is still in operation today, making it the country’s second oldest cheese producer!
Visitors to the factory can enjoy a tour, onsite museum, and delicious samples of some of the country’s finest cheese.
