LBJ Museum of San Marcos Summer Chautauqua

Christy Carpenter, Liz Carpenter’s daughter and biographer, will be speaking at the LBJ Museum’s summer Chautauqua on Thursday, July 18. Last year the LBJ Museum brought back the Chautauqua, an institution that provided popular adult education courses and entertainment in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. San Marcos was the site of a pretty famous Chautauqua around 1900 and their summer camp format proved very popular for families. The name has staying power with Texas State University as Old Main sits on Chautauqua Hill and there is a student residence called Chautauqua Hall.

Marcos River just below the dam at Spring Lake.
