Calvin Coolidge: The Monadnock Region As I Knew It
Name: Calvin Coolidge: The Monadnock Region As I Knew It
Date: April 19, 2017
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Born in Vermont, Calvin Coolidge served as Governor of Massachusetts and Vice President before becoming our nation's 30th President on August 2, 1923. Famous for his blend of Yankee wit and wisdom, "Silent Cal" had surprising connections to many towns here in the Monadnock region - classmates, relatives, and road trips. Join the Historical Society of Cheshire County as local historian Tracy Messer makes his debut as "Calvin Coolidge" on Wednesday, April 19th at 7:00 pm. You’ll laugh and learn ... • Which Mayor of Keene is descended from one of Coolidge’s classmates? • What town welcomed first lady Grace Coolidge to their sesquicentennial? • Where was the intersection that led more than one US president astray? • Who was the Monadnock artist that made a portrait of Calvin, Jr.? • Which town is now home to President Coolidge’s great granddaughter? This event is free and open to the public. A brief annual meeting will occur before President Coolidge’s presentation. For further information call 603-352-1895 or visit hsccnh.org.
