 A Brief History of Green Gables 

1873 - The Lakeside Company, now Lakeside Chautauqua, is founded  on the shores of Lake Erie.

1883 - Green Gables, a classic Steamboat Gothic cottage, is built on a premium lot on Lakeside's Central Park, and then purchased by Mary Cook of Norwalk, Ohio.

1893 - Mary Cook leaves for Philadelpdia to start her medical practice and signs Green Gables over to her sister, Alice, who then begins to operate Green Gables as a boarding house.

1928 - Alice sells Green Gables to Lakeside, and the "Grand Old Lady" on the park becomes the official home of the newly established Lakeside Women's Club.

1941 - The Lakeside Women's Club  opens the library at Green Gables.  More than 80 years later, the library continues to serve the Lakeside community.

1944 - The Lakeside Women's Club opens Green Gables to in-season room rentals to women.  The Lakeside Women's Club mission of hospitality continues to this day.

2024 - Please come for a stay at Green Gables during Lakeside's 151st season!
