Chautauqua Days at Gene Stratton-Porter site

ROME CITY, Ind. – The annual Chautauqua Days Festival, which celebrates the life of Gene Stratton-Porter, Indiana’s most widely read female author, will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16, and Sunday, Aug. 17, at the Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site in Rome City.
