The Landmark Project: CHL# 839

CHL# 839 CHAUTAUQUA HALL

The first Chautauqua in the West was organized at Pacific Grove in June 1879 for the presentation of ‘moral attractions’ and ‘the highest grade of concerts and entertainments.’ Known worldwide as ‘Chautauqua-by-the-Sea,’ it made Pacific Grove an unequaled cultural center.

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
