Chautauqua Institution, NY






Chautauqua Institution, 1 Ames Ave. Chautauqua, NY. 14722, "The Chautauqua Institution is a non-profit education center and summer resort for adults & youth located on 750 acres in Chautauqua, New York, 17 miles northwest of Jamestown in the southwestern part of New York State." we were glad to stop in to this location, when it was during the off season, now i would enjoy being a fly on the wall just to see it when it was totally full, but the man at the front desk said it is nuts!! for me that is enough info. to stay the heck away. Beth doesn't like huge big crowds, pass on that. it is amazing how close the homes are and how u have very little, if any grass or yard?? i love me some country living. don't think i could or would fit in here??! so fun to see all the gorgeous architecture, this is the time that they are allowed to work on their homes and have work trucks everywhere. normally it is very strict no cars or truck anywhere during the on season ...just golf carts and bikes, i believe? have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
