HISTORY

King’s Gate: a Tale of Two Pillars

Since 1898, King’s Gate has welcomed visitors to experience the Colorado Chautauqua through lifelong learning, love of nature, voluntary simplicity, and music, oration and the arts. Originally, King’s Gate functioned as an entrance for passengers on the trolley from downtown, as well as those arriving by horse and buggy. Defining the area of entry were two pillars built of field stone harvested from the site and decorative “lanterns.” As access to the Chautauqua campus became more varied, in 1912 the primary entry point was moved west to the intersection of Baseline and Grant Street. By 1917, the King’s Gate entry was reconstructed to create a more “formal” entry.

These iconic structures have welcomed visitors to Colorado Chautauqua for over one hundred years. Research shows sometimes in the mid last century, the lantern staves, or uprights were removed, truncating the historic pillars. As part of the Colorado Chautauqua Association’s (CCA) commitment to preservation of the National Historic Landmark, the restoration of the ‘lanterns” became paramount. Through the long-standing relationship with a Boulder-based structural engineer and local masonry contractor who specializes in restoration and preservation work, and review and approval of the Landmarks Preservation staff, CCA was able to accurately reconstruct the pillar caps.
