Get a taste of Palm Springs history and get to know the movers and shakers who shaped its growth and development. See why Palm Springs captured the imagination of desert modern architects who designed iconic midcentury structures for fashion and finance, including the first Saks Fifth Avenue store in the desert. See how midcentury design was applied to commercial buildings, structures that blend into the desert landscape, but at the same time create impressive homes for the banks and financial institutions that occupied them.
Presented by the Palm Springs Historical Society.
