Photo of the Day: Near the Heart of Chautauqua

This picturesque home, recently restored, is one of the distinctive examples of Victorian architecture at the Chautauqua Institution, which I visited on vacation last week. Buckeye Cottage was named in honor of Lewis Miller, one of the founders of Chautauqua, who made his fortune with the Buckeye Mower. Geographically, there might be homes nearer to the heart of this community; as an example of its age and of the men who built this distinctively American institution, however, few sites on the grounds can surpass this structure.
