Usually only seen on small and exclusive architectural tours, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation (PSPF) is proud to make the Abernathy Residence available to a broader audience for a second year. 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 Australias 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. This PSPF tour was first presented last year in celebration of architect William Codys 100th birthday. Tourgoers will receive an excerpt from PSPFs 2004 out-of-print tribute journal The Architecture of William F. Cody: A Desert Retrospective and a full color reprint of the Belle magazine article.
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.
