Chautauqua takes its name from a movement that began near Lake Chautauqua, New York, in the 1800’s. It began with Sunday school teachers gathering for a week of study, but it became a touring program through which local communities could enjoy traveling speakers, politicians, plays, and music. Today, Chautauqua has been reinvented to bring the humanities, especially history, back to life.
