Description

From founding families in the early 1800s to contemporary conservationists in 2011, this volume celebrates a multitude of individuals who have impacted the Chautauqua Lake region.

Subsequent chapters showcase the lakeside communities of Mayville, Dewittville, Point Chautauqua, Maple Springs, Bemus Point, Greenhurst, Fluvanna, Jamestown, Celoron, Lakewood, Ashville, Stow, and the Chautauqua Institution. Each presents several residents who aided its growth, made significant contributions, or simply remain of interest for their uniqueness.

About the Author

Passionate about their ancestral roots in Chautauqua County, Kathleen Crocker, manager of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle at the Chautauqua Institution, and Jane Currie, photojournalist and shopkeeper, also coauthored Chautauqua Institution, 1874-1974. For Chautauqua Lake Region, they gathered primarily from private collections nearly two hundred images, many of them never before published, and combined them with local lore and eyewitness accounts gleaned from personal interviews. The result is a thought-provoking and historically accurate visual retrospective that stands as a high tribute to the unique heritage and unforgettable charm of the region.
