Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the club, this year's walking tour features a dozen special cottages all built more than 100 years ago. They are located in some of Chautauqua's oldest areas including Miller Park - the site of the first Assembly in 1874, the historic central section near the Main Gate and the southern end of the grounds near the Hall of Philosophy.
The homes represent a range of architectural styles and interior design approaches. Each showcases the creativity of owners who have modified their cottages to suit their needs while preserving the homes' character and charm.
27 Miller Park will be one house featured on the tour.
Tickets for admission to the 12 designated tour houses are $30 each and are available by mail order only.
