Presidential Pathways: Calvin Coolidge Birthplace

John Coolidge Sr. was born and raised in Plymouth Notch, Vt., and operated the town store when his wife Victoria gave birth to their first child.  Born on July 4, 1872, John Calvin Coolidge Jr. was the first president to be born on the Fourth of July.  The future president lived at the family homestead until he was fifteen and left to be educated at Black River Academy in Ludlow, Vt.

The Coolidge family operated the town’s general store, and lived in a small cabin behind it.
