Spend a hour sitting in the grove with a view of the Hall of Philosophy.
Reminiscent of an early Greek temple with its stone-like columns, open walls, and heavy-timber roof, the original Hall of Philosophy was designed by Chautauqua co-founder Bishop John Heyl Vincent for the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle (CLSC). The CLSC is now an international community of readers and lifelong learners and is believed to be the longest-running book club in America.

Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue.
