The Village of Mayville is in the Town of Chautauqua, and is the county
seat of Chautauqua County. The Village Office is located on South Erie
Street across from the Village Green.
Mayville is the nearest village to the Chautauqua Institution, which
draws thousands of visitors during the summer months. Businesses
in the Village do a brisk tourist business both with Chautauqua and with
visitors to cottages and resorts on the east and west sides of the lake.
