Palm Springs Historical Walking Tour – Modernism Treasures

On ancestral land of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians is an attractive collection of luxurious Modernist residences with impressive landscapes lining the historic Indian Canyons Golf Resort.

With spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and the lush fairways, these homes feature a treasure trove of concrete screen block patterns and a profusion of fascinating desert plants. This first 18-hole golf course in Palm Springs was a magnet for TV legends. Walt Disney, Chuck “Rifleman” Connors, and David “Fugitive” Janssen were some of the stars who lived and played here. Sinatra would swing with his famous pals at this swanky resort, and chose to host his first celebrity invitational golf tournament on these greens. Influences of the Agua Caliente tribe abound.

The Modernism Treasures walk will be led by Jim Cook who is quite entertaining and a wealth of knowledge.

Meet at S Camino Real and E Murray Canyon Real, next to the tennis courts.

Easy walk.

The fee to participate has been discounted to $20 for Coachella Valley Hiking Club, this is normally $25 to $40 dollars. Pay Shirl Donahue with cash or Venmo.
