Chautauqua is a town and lake resort community in Chautauqua County , New York , United States. [3] The population was 4,464 at the 2010 census. [4] The town is named after Chautauqua Lake . The traditional meaning remains "bag tied in the middle". The suggested meanings of this Seneca word have become numerous: "the place where one is lost"; "the place of easy death"; "fish taken out"; "foggy place"; "high up"; "two moccasins fastened together"; and "a bag tied in the middle".

The town of Chautauqua is in the western part of the county on the northwestern end of Chautauqua Lake. It is northwest of Jamestown . Chautauqua is famous as the home of the Chautauqua Institution , the birthplace in 1875 of the Chautauqua Movement of educational and cultural centers.

The town of Chautauqua was formed on April 11, 1805, from the town of Batavia , while still part of Genesee County . The first settler arrived the year before, near the current village of Mayville . When Chautauqua County was created on March 11, 1808, the town's territory was increased to include the eastern tier of townships, so that the town and the new county were coextensive. The town is the "mother of towns" in Chautauqua County since all other towns in the county towns were once part of it. The town is still one of the largest in the county. [5]

In 2008, colleagues in OSU's HDFS Department had the idea of gathering a few national colleagues, bringing them to Oklahoma, and having a small conference where presentation time would be followed by long periods of discussion. We chose the term Chautauqua because we were hosting an "educational opportunity in rural America," similar to the first Chautauquas in the U.S. The original OSU Chautauquas were focused on parenting themes and sponsored by the Department of Human Development and Family Science , but recently evolved to focus on individual and family resilience. Our Chautauqua is now sponsored by the CFR and is also called the  Conference on Family Resilience .

Chautauqua County's unique character owes much to its Victorian heritage as well as to the sons and daughters who bring international recognition to its little towns. Visit a National Historic Landmark within the gates of the Chautauqua Institution or see grand historic residences at the McClurg Museum, the D.R. Barker Museum, and the Governor Fenton History Center. Learn about the fascinating and diverse work of Lucille Ball, Robert H. Jackson, or Roger Tory Peterson. Discover lighthouses, local culture, war influences and more at museums throughout Chautauqua County.
