“It’s about what you know but also what you can learn,” explained Mt. Gretna Area Historical Society President Sue Hostetter.

The first trivia event was held in January 2017 around Campmeeting and Chautauqua’s 125th anniversary. Questions ranged from Mt. Gretna’s early 1890’s history to the modern day. Here are some example questions they asked the first time.

Q:  What was the name of the Native American woman who had a gift shop attached to Kauffman’s Store?

Q:  What year was the first Chautauqua Outdoor Arts and Crafts Show?
