About Us

Chaumiere Neighborhood Association



To ensure that Chaumiere is a safe community with well-maintained homes where people are proud to live.


President John Quincy Adams first deeded this piece of land that is now Chaumiere to Elizabeth Arnold in 1826.

It was purchased by Benjamin Ricketts in 1834, who bequested it to his family upon his death in 1881.

William R. Summers purchased the land in 1882, and he named his farm "Chaumiere" after an estate in Jassamine County, Kentucky. Eventually the land was owned by various members of the Squire family (hence the name "Squire Heights") and was gradually divided into our neighborhood.


A monthly four page newsletter is produced and delivered to all Chaumiere Residents by volunteer neighborhood people. We try to put it "in your door" approximately one week prior to the monthly meeting. This newsletter contains articles of general interest about neighborhood and city activities & opportunities to volunteer in your neighborhood. Pictures of award winning homes and other things of interest also appear in the newsletter.
