Join us for a fascinating Palm Springs tour of tastefully restored modernist homes built by Jack Meiselman (pronounced “MY-zill-min") from the mid 1950s through the early 1960s. Meiselman built less than 300 affordable post and beam homes in Palm Springs that feature clean lines, clerestory windows, and open plan living spaces with walls of glass to the outdoors and the pool. The front of each home features a unique stucco pattern - diamonds, abstracts, lines, or rectangles — that symbolize midcentury style. They were designed in a variety of rooflines, including butterfly. Meiselman homes are scattered throughout the city in small tracts (often near Alexander built neighborhoods). Primarily they are clustered in Little Beverly Hills, Sunmor, Sunrise Park, and Racquet Club Estates areas. This is a self-paced driving tour that will introduce you to some of the city’s lesser-known midcentury neighborhoods.
All proceeds from this tour will benefit Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, a 501c(3) non-profit organization, which manages and operates the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. More information about the shelter can be found at http://psanimalshelter.org
