Event Description
Step back in time with Martinis on the Mountain at the historic O'Donnell House, nestled high above Palm Springs with magnificent views of the valley below. Built in 1925 for oil tycoon Thomas O'Donnell and his wife, the home originally known as Ojo del Desierto (Eye of the Desert) was designed by architect and artist William Charles Tanner. The 4,200 square foot Mediterranean Revival-Monterey style home features four bedrooms and six fireplaces. In 2000, The O'Donnell House was acquired by its present owners who began its restoration to its former glory. The City of Palm Springs recognized it as a Historic Site in 1986 and in 2000, and in 2011 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Get ready to sip your favorite libation at Martinis on the Mountain with live entertainment and dancing featuring the sounds of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Fabulous hors d'oeuvres along with information on the residence will be a part of this special event as you gaze upon beautiful Palm Springs while being transported to an earlier time. The O'Donnell House is a unique part of Modernism Week and this is a rare opportunity for architecture aficionados. You won't want to miss this event and visit this historic residence. Martinis on the Mountain benefits the Meals On Wheels Program and other programs and services of the Mizell Senior Center.
