CHAUTAUQUA HISTORY

In Chautauqua’s early years, the water pump was the place to hang out.

When the reservoir water became suspect (sometime before 1910), the windmill and tank were replaced by a hand pump to a new deep well, and the water was considered purer. Fetching water for families staying at Chautauqua was the children’s chore.
But everyone congregated there. The Chautauqua Bulletin noted that thousands of visitors from all parts of the country came to drink the pure water from the deep well, but also stayed to talk with friends about the program of the night before, the lecture of the morning and the next social gathering in the Community House.
In 1941, all Chautauqua buildings were connected to the new city water main.

Despite efforts by the Cottagers Club to save it as a memento, the city condemned the well, and the pump was moved to the top of Flagstaff Mountain where it was eventually removed.
