During the first part of the 20th century, Chautauquas served as a medium for the dissemination of popular culture.

Colorado Chautauqua / Chautauqua Park

By 1900, after beginning with a group of tents in 1898, fifty cottages occupied the park.  The cottages remain virtually intact, and this is the only active Chautauqua located west of the Mississippi.
