At a closer look, no one would know that a homestead in Plymouth Notch, Vermont was the same homestead where Calvin Coolidge took an oath of office by the light of a kerosene lamp on a fateful night of August 3, 1923. Nothing has changed since that historic moment; in fact, after almost ninety years, the lamp, Bible and table used in the oathtaking were still in their historic positions. This is why the Calvin Coolidge Homestead, also known as Calvin Coolidge Historic Site, is considered one of the best preserved Presidential sites in the United States.

Aside from the boyhood home of Calvin Coolidge, the 560-acre property has around 26 buildings, including the Plymouth Cheese Factory, where visitors can sample simple curd cheese. The site was declared a National Historic Landmark on June 23, 1965.
