Bill Hammons: Writing and Running in Boulder, Colorado






BILL HAMMONS' GUIDE TO BOULDER, COLORADO AND BEYOND

Chautauqua

In 1897, a group of Texas teachers chose Boulder as the site for a Chautauqua - a family retreat focusing on culture, music, nature, religion, and family activities. Boulder was chosen from its climate and beauty, and its Chautauqua (once part of a nation-wide movement) is one of only three remaining in the country today. Boulder's Chautauqua (located below Green Mountain just off Baseline Road, with a view of the stunning Flatirons) was completed on Independence Day, 1898, and includes an auditorium for concerts and other events and a year-round dining hall.
