Sat., June 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30, 2018 • Performances at 1 & 3 p.m.
Ohio History Center, Columbus
The Chautauqua, a popular late 19th-century entertainment, was a natural fit for scenic Lakeside, Ohio. In August of 1873, preachers from the area gathered together to create an area where people could come together and enjoy music, preaching and speechifying. Listen as one reveler, played by Sarah Jaquays, talks about her Chautauqua memories. This performance lasts about 30–45 minutes.
