Palm Springs and the Desert Resorts Sights

Cabot's Pueblo Museum

Fodor's Review

Cabot Yerxa, the man who found the spring that made Desert Hot Springs famous, built a quirky four-story, 35-room pueblo between 1939 and his death in 1965. Now a museum run by the city of Desert Hot Springs—Yerxa was the town's first mayor—the Hopi-inspired adobe structure is filled with memorabilia of his time as a homesteader; his encounters with Hollywood celebrities at the nearby Bar-H Ranch; his expedition to the Alaskan gold rush; and many other events. The

home, much of it crafted out of materials Yerxa recycled from the desert, can only be seen on hour-long tours. Outside, you can walk the beautiful grounds to a lookout with amazing desert views.
