Chautauqua County

The world-renowned Chautauqua Institution—a recreation, education, arts, and religious campus on Lake Chautauqua established in 1874—hosts more than 2,000 events each summer. Residents and visitors also enjoy Peek’N’Peak Ski and Golf Resort and myriad campgrounds, cottages, and cabins. Chautauqua has two colleges in the state university system, Fredonia and Jamestown Community College. In addition, historic Lily Dale, tucked in the woods along Upper Cassadaga Lake, is home to the country’s largest spiritualist community, attracting thousands of believers and skeptics alike each summer and making for a lively—and maybe even enlightening—visit!
