Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 23, 1987):
One of the finest remaining examples of two uniquely American community forms, the Methodist Camp Meeting and the independent Chautauqua. Designed for the first purpose in 1876 as the country's only romantically planned campground, and adapted for the second from 1885 to 1915, Bay View is a major monument of American religious, cultural, social and educational ideals embodied in an artistically shaped community plan with 437 contributing buildings.

Condition:
Development in the area of a major road, shopping centers and golf courses are impacting the National Historic Landmark district boundary. Depressed economy is also affecting the area.

There have been no changes since the last report.
