CHAUTAUQUA HISTORY

Deep in the heart of the Texas-Colorado Chautauqua

As Texans were instrumental in the founding of Chautauqua back in 1898, many streets, cottages and outdoor spaces were named for their home state. Texas was dropped from the name of the association in 1901, but many Lone Star state names remain at Chautauqua today.

What we now call the Chautauqua grounds were once referred to as Texado Park. The Waterwise Garden, behind Academic Hall, was named Alamo Park in the original Chautauqua plans, although it never materialized. Instead, the space was used for tents, buggy parking and later Art Hall was moved there.

Campus streets are now named for regional flora such as Lupine, Morning Glory and Primrose. But in the beginning, Texas Avenue ran in front of the Academic Hall and Dallas Avenue shows up in earlier maps.

The mountain landmark Alamo Rock was named by an early Chautauquan from San Antonio.

Teachers from more than a few Texas cities built cottages including Houston, Fort Worth, Dennison, Corsicana, Terrell, Hillsboro, Brownwood and San Antonio.

In the summer, cars bearing Texas license plates are easy to spot. You might even see the Lone Star State flag flying at cottage or two.
