CHAUTAUQUA HISTORY

In 1898, the Colorado Chautauqua Association founded the first university-level summer school in Colorado, For the first two seasons, classes were held in noisy, breezy tents. But in 1900, two private backers funded the building of a schoolhouse for $3,000.00.

Academic Hall boasted four large classrooms on the first floor, plus two classrooms and a chapel/classroom combo on the second floor. It could accommodate up to 800 students. The city of Boulder purchased it for $1,250.00 in 1905. To this day, Academic Hall retains its original flooring and interior walls. It is furnished with antique furniture, historic photographs, and original art depicting Chautauqua, as well as a display of early linoleum used in the cottages.
