History: Andrew Goodhue was inspector of steam vessels on Lake Champlain, and also was co-owner of Lang and Goodhue Manufacturing Company. He built 123 Maple Street, where Grace, his only child, grew up. As his fortunes improved, he moved the family up the hill to the more prestigious section of town, and built a rather modest house at 312 Maple. Grace was a student at the University of Vermont in 1899, and often entertained friends from college here. She met Calvin Coolidge and married him in the parlor of this house on October 4, 1905. Andrew Goodhue died in 1923, and the house passed through several owners before Champlain College purchased it in 1988. After extensive remodeling, the house was converted to offices.
