The village, which is also the birthplace and boyhood home of President Calvin Coolidge has remained virtually unchanged since the early 1900s. Consequently, it’s is an absolutely wonderful place to visit for the holidays!

President Coolidge’s Birthplace will be decorated as it would have been in the 1870’s, when Coolidge was born. In fact winter exhibits and Christmas decorations will be up all over this historic village. The Aldrich House, Plymouth Cheese Factory, and the 1924 Summer White House office will all be gussied up for the holidays.

The Plymouth Cheese Factory in Plymouth Notch opened over one hundred years ago, in 1890. The factory was started by John Coolidge, the father of Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States, and continues to make cheese to this day.

It is said that Julia Child considered Plymouth Cheese her favorite – and who can blame her!
