Old Home Day

First popularized during the early 20th century, Plymouth Old Home Day promises to be better than ever in 2015!  Join us for this long-time town tradition, which includes the annual meeting of the Coolidge Foundation at 10:00 am in the Union Christian Church, a special presentation by agricultural historian Paul Wood (sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council’s Speakers Bureau) at 1:30 pm, and the reenactment of Calvin Coolidge’s “Homestead Inaugural” at 2:47 pm.  Wagon rides, barbecue, old-time music, sheep shearing, traditional craft demonstrations, and “Clara’s Games” (historic children’s games organized by the Vermont Historical Society) will also be available for your enjoyment.

You are also invited to the Coolidge Foundation’s Annual Summer Gala “Under the Tent” featuring acclaimed presidential historian Richard Norton Smith and former New Hampshire governor and White House Chief of Staff John H. Sununu. More information about tickets can be found on our Summer Gala page.
