About LHS

The Lakeside Heritage Society (LHS) was established in 1968 to collect, preserve and interpret the history of the Lakeside Chautauqua which was founded as a Methodist camp meeting in 1873, the Marblehead Peninsula in Northwest Ohio, and the American Chautauqua Movement.  The Society operates both a Museum with a gift shop and an Archives Center.  Both the Museum and Archives Center are located on the Lakeside Chautauqua campus.
