The National Trust for Historic Preservation recently announced that the Chautauqua Amphitheater has been included as one of its 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. Since 1988, the National Trust has used its list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places to raise awareness about the threats facing some of the nation’s greatest treasures. The list, which has identified more than 250 sites to date, has been so successful in galvanizing preservation efforts that only a handful of sites have been lost.

Today I heard that the Landmark Society is getting involved with the controversy regarding the amphitheatre at the Chautauqua Institution. I am pleased to see this initiative! I am a frequent contributor and participant in the Chautauqua Institution events; for the last 30 years I have spent time on the grounds. I strongly urge the Landmark Society to continue their efforts to preserve the amphitheater. It is one of Chautauqua’s treasures, &, indeed, one of our country’s treasures. Thank you so much for your efforts.
Sincerely, Jay Stetzer
