Frederick Law Olmsted’s Point Chautaqua: The Story of an Historic Lakeside Community

A well-preserved creation of America’s most celebrated landscape architect, Point Chautauqua’s 1875 Frederick Law Olmsted design is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Among Olmsted’s many works, Point Chautauqua stands alone. Only here did the master find a physical setting that conformed to his aesthetic ideal. Moreover, this was his only design for a religious community. Frederick Law Olmsted’s Point Chautauqua richly exhibits Olmsted’s design principles, making it a perfect example of historic landscape architecture that is also a living, working community, and a rewarding laboratory for students of historic landscape architecture.
