About Us

The Thomas Jefferson Memorial Center at Coolidge Point (TJMC), established in 2011, provides an environment conducive to the study of political thinkers of the Early American Republic. A yearly lecture relates to Thomas Jefferson’s life and philosophy.

TJMC comprises a Conference Center and Georgian style residence, situated on 15 coastal acres of woodlands, lawns and garden. The Center encourages organizations and institutions to submit proposals for programs and retreats. Among those who have made use of the facilities are The Harvard Art Museums, The Massachusetts Historical Society, The Cape Ann Museum and the Massachusetts Society, Children of the American Revolution.

The Jefferson legacy is the result of the marriage at Monticello in 1825 of Jefferson’s granddaughter Ellen Wayles Randolph to Joseph Coolidge, Jr., of Boston. Their youngest son, Thomas Jefferson Coolidge, bought what is now Coolidge Point in 1871.
