Chautauqua is one of the most picturesque places in Boulder. If you can score a house in this neighborhood, the views alone are worth it! Tucked under the Flatirons, you can't get much closer to Boulder's stunning mountains.
Chautauqua was established in the late 1890's when the Texas Board of Regents established a six-week summer school and retreat for teachers. The Texans were attracted to Boulder because of its healthy land, beautiful views, good facilities and public utilities.
