CHAUTAUQUA IN MT. PLEASANT ~ from Nickles From A Sheep's Back by Pearle Madsen Olsen

When Chautauqua ~~~ a popular lyceum and amusement enterprise of the late 19th and early 20th centuries  ~~ came to town each summer for a number of years, the residents flocked to the big tent and willingly paid admission to hear the wonderful talents on the fascinating programs.  Stimulating lecturers told of world travels and experiences that gave many people their first real taste of world cultures  ~~  and the musical entertainment was some of the best in that period of time. See Chautauqua
