Photo of the Day: Gingerbread Cottage, Chautauqua Institution

When people ask me about the Chautauqua Institution, I mention its nine-week summer program of public-affairs and religion lectures and its lovely lakeside environment. But somehow, the description seems terribly incomplete without also mentioning the architecture that has led this Victorian Era village in upstate New York to be designated a National Historic Landmark. This photograph I took, when I was vacationing there at the start of the month, shows one of these unique structures: the Gingerbread Cottage, dating back to 1891.
