Join the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation for a tour of Frank Sinatra's beautiful "Twin Palms" estate, designed by modernist architect E. Stewart Williams in 1947. With the help of PSPF, the home was designated a Class 1 Historic Site by the city of Palm Springs in March of 2011 and has been described as "great midcentury design combined with Hollywood lore.” The house was later listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This is a self-guided tour but a PSPF board member will give a brief talk about the architecture and history of the house. Tour goers will receive a collectible over-sized postcard by talented local artist Nat Reed featuring a rendering of Sinatra’s “Twin Palms” Estate.
The Palm Springs Preservation Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is “to educate and promote public awareness of the importance of preserving the historical resources and architecture of the city of Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley area.” PSPF offers free membership as a public benefit.
