Ohio Chautauqua 2018: Modern Legends

Gallipolis

June 12 – 16

Gallipolis (pronounced Gal’ -a -po -lees’) is a beautiful village located on the Ohio River in southeastern Ohio. The name derives from the Latin “Galli” for Gaul or France and the Greek “polis” for city. It is familiarly known as “The City of the Gauls” and “The Old French Settlement.” Settled in 1790 by men and women from France—the group popularly known as the French 500—it has a rich historical background, much of which has been preserved in the Our House Museum. Gallipolis is pleased to welcome Ohio Chautauqua for the seventh time since 2006.
