From the plaque:

The first Chautauqua in the West. Organized at Pacific Grove in June, 1879, for the presentation of 'moral attractions' and 'the highest grade of concerts and entertainments.' Known worldwide as 'Chautauqua-by-the-Sea,' it made Pacific Grove an unequaled cultural center.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the City of Pacific Grove, July 20, 1970.
