A short message about two of the many great things about Shelbyville Illinois, Forest Park and the Chautauqua Auditorium. Walkers, runners, hikers, and bicyclists are already enjoying the natural beauty that the trail offers. A Grand Opening celebration was held July of 2006 as the first mile of the trail received surface improvements in the spring of 2006. The trail surface was upgraded from dirt and grass to a ten foot wide limestone surface. Another improvement at various locations is the placements of benches for users to rest and take in some spectacular views. The Chautauqua Auditorium, built in 1903, is a large historic icosagonal (20-sided) wooden chautauqua meeting hall located at Forest Park and North East 9th Street, Shelbyville, Illinois, United States. On January 30, 1978, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.[1] In 2009 Landmarks Illinois declared it one of the 10 most endangered historic places in Illinois. The building is in need of extensive repairs which are estimated to cost 50000. The city of Shelbyville which owns the auditorium has threatened to tear it down if repairs cannot be made within 2 years. The Chautauqua Auditorium Preservation Committee is working on funding for a four-phase renovation project. This site is dedicated to the Chautauqua Auditorium located in Forest Park
