  • Saw a mini version years ago when it was, I think, in a small curator's office in the corner. Now they have it in a spacious room on the second floor. It goes through his early years as mayor of North...  more »

  • Small but important! Calvin Coolidge was one of those presidents that I just sort of heard of (and memorized his name) but I knew literally nothing else about him. This museum solved all that. Personal effects, letters, photos- it was great :) It is a medium sized room and a reproduction of his law office. You can read everything and see anything in about 30 minutes. It is free.
  • If you have a few minutes to spare and appreciate American history, stop on by. The library has limited hours, but any of the librarians are happy to open it up and allow you to explore. The museum features many original possessions and artwork of Pres. Coolidge. Humble. Subtle. The presidential library that matches Silent Call to a T.
  • Great historic library in Northampton, MA. The second floor is made out of glass!!
  • It's not really a presidential library; Mrs. Coolidge made the request that his office when he was a lawyer should be preserved. I believe even the door says Law Office. The Library could not turn down her request but that is a public library, not a presidential library site. His homestead is in Vermont; that's where most people go. I don't believe all presidents have libraries.
  • Small, one room in the public library. Nice curated collection on the life of Coolidge.
