Coolidge Point: The Thomas Jefferson Memorial (1871)

History with a view

Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts

A waterfront estate established by descendants of Thomas Jefferson, Coolidge Point has been home to the Coolidge family since 1871. The family built the Brick House in 1968 in the neo-Georgian style, modeling it after George Wythe House in Williamsburg, Virginia.

A showcase for furnishings evocative of the Colonial era, as well as a museum of Jefferson and Coolidge family artifacts, the house contains family portraits, seascape paintings, Chinese export porcelain, and early New England furniture. The grounds and program space at Coolidge Point are open periodically for lectures, landscape tours, and other programs.
