We are an educational non-profit organization. Our goal is to preserve our community history. Why? It's simple. Our Chautauqua is the last remaining Chautauqua in Illinois, and one of only eleven Chautauquas' across the country that can trace a direct connection to the 1874 New York Chautauqua. Preserving our history takes money. This campaign seeks support to fund the projected cost of new technologies and software to maintain a digital archival collection available to community members and research scholars.
