What will the Chautauqua Auditorium be used for?


Shelbyville - More efforts are underway to save the Chautauqua.

Dozens meet Monday night to decide on a plan to utilize the building. Supporters say after renovations more than 60 events could take place in the building. The group also said the building could be self supporting once remodeling is finished.

The Shelbyville Chautauqua Auditorium was at risk of being demolished. However, the auditorium was saved from the wrecking ball after a series of successful fund raisers.

A full restoration will cost 1.7-million dollars.
