Amphitheater, 1900

Mountain Lake Park, Maryland: Auditorium / Amphitheater Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


In 1900 the large, magnificent Auditorium was built by the Mt. Lake Park Association in 1900. It is without question one of the finest and best equipped auditoriums in the land.

It is the largest auditorium ever erected in Garrett County. It had a seating capacity of four thousand. Here were presented the programs of the Mountain Chautauqua during the month of August until the close of the first World War. The most noted speakers of America addressed capacity audiences from its spacious platform. It was also the setting for the Mountain Choir Festival from 1934 to 1941. Shortly afterwards it was dismantled by an itinerant religious organization.
