Calvin Coolidge's grave

Buried: Plymouth Notch, Vermont
Died: January 3, 1933

See him: Silent Cal is in the running for having the most beautiful final resting place of any president – Plymouth Notch’s cemetery is set on a hill on a quiet country road, with tree-covered mountains in the background. It’s not enough to make you wish you were dead, but it’s pretty close. The cemetery is on Route 100A, just beyond the Calvin Coolidge Historic Site, where the president was born and raised, and where he was staying in 1923 when he received word that President Warren Harding had died and that he would need to step in and lead the country. You can see the very spot where Coolidge’s father used his authority as a notary public to swear his son in as president by candlelight. As if all that wasn’t enough, there is a cheese shop on the premises, and it is fantastic too.
