Presidents’ Day Open House and Talk on Coolidge and Civil Rights

 

Join us on February 20 for the Coolidge Foundation’s Annual President’s Day Open House at the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site in Plymouth, Vermont.

The Calvin Coolidge Museum and Education Center will be open from noon to 4:00.

Enjoy the award winning museum exhibit and explore the hands-on activities for all ages in the Coolidge Classroom. Walk through the quiet village where Coolidge grew up, returned to, and was sworn in as our nation’s 30th President. Stop in at the award winning Plymouth Cheese Factory.

At 2:00, Rushad Thomas will speak about Opening the Door of Hope, the Untold Story of Coolidge and Civil Rights. Coolidge’s integrity when interacting with people of diverse backgrounds and races is an aspect that is now being further understood and appreciated. Newspaper articles and other evidence from the past will round out the story.

The Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation partners with the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation to present these programs.

The Coolidge Museum and Education Center is located on 3780 Route 100A in Plymouth.
