    Not to be overly picky, but I think you meant “Tours Of Historic White Pine Camp:. The Camp is historic, not the tour!

    Calvin Coolidge! I recently read a biography on him written in 1925 by William Allen White. President’s generally don’t interest me, Teddy Roosevelt being the exception, but I could not help but become interested in this man ever since I accidentally came upon his grave at Plymouth Notch, Vt. I had no idea he was buried there until I happened upon his grave. Since that initial visit I have been to his plot a few more times and then I found a 1925 biography on Coolidge by William Allen White that someone had thrown out, and there have been other coincidences connected with Coolidge and so I have come to find the man very interesting, and of course him being Vermont born and raised grabs me as I am just so drawn to the woods and hills and brooks and all of that tranquil space and charm that comes with that state.

    And here I come to find Mr. Coolidge, who had a greed for silence, found a place to go on summer days in my beloved Adirondacks. There’s something about this man!

      Yes, there is, Coolidge was a republican and a true small government conservative.

      Not sure I would call White Pine camp a “great camp” but it is a cool place.

    Only president born on the 4th of July!
