Usually only seen on small and exclusive architectural tours, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation is proud to make the Abernathy Residence available to a broader audience. Designed by midcentury architect William F. Cody for millionaire socialite James Logan Abernathy in 1962, the 4,680-square foot pavilion-style house was notably featured in both the Dec/Jan 2011/2012 issue of Australia's Belle magazine and the May 2012 issue of French Architectural Digest. The home features a stunning interior which is liberally appointed with rare midcentury furniture and decorative arts by a host of important French and American craftsmen and designers. Through the efforts of the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation the residence was designated a Class 1 Historic Site by the city of Palm Springs in February of 2013. Tourgoers will receive an informational handout.
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.
