A Brief History of the Chautauqua

The Chautauqua tradition extends back to 1874 with the first ever Chautauqua held at a campsite along the banks of Chautauqua Lake in New York. The tradition promotes the exchanging of intellectual and creative ideas and provides a venue for people to engage with communities beyond their own. For more information on the history of the Chautauqua, visit the Wikipedia page.
