    Fountain Park has been the site of annual Chautauqua sessions since 1895. The Chautauqua continues to promote traditional values and religious, social and educational activities upon which it was founded.

    The grounds are normally closed to the public, except during the annual Chatauqua, when there are special programs (and an entry fee). Traditional Chatauquas include lectures on moral and philosophical issues, religious programs, music, drama, and dance.

    The Chautauqua Institution was opened in 1874, founded by inventor Lewis Miller and John Heyl Vincent. It was one of the first non-profit arts communities in the country. The charming 19th century institution has attracted a variety of diverse resident artists and lecturers, including George Gershwin, Lucille Ball, and Horace Greeley. All presidents from U.S. Grant to Bill Clinton have given speeches at the Institution.
