Special Tour Format: Due to social distancing protocols, tourgoer numbers have been reduced! This will allow attendees a more intimate tour experience, a better opportunity for photography, and more educational interaction with PSPF board members and docents.
Always one of the most popular events of Modernism Week, join the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation for a tour of Frank Sinatra's storied “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 2011 and has been described as “great midcentury design combined with Hollywood lore.” The residence was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016. This is a self-guided tour but tourgoers will receive an eight-page color collectible 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.
