Rancho Mirage's history, mid-century architectural gems to be showcased during Modernism Week

The Tamarisk neighborhood walking tour, presented by Preservation Mirage, will highlight significant, historic homes behind Tamarisk Country Club designed by famed desert modernist architects including Hugh Kaptur, William F. Cody, Donald Wexler, William Krisel and Val Powelson. Nearby Da Vaal Estates, a mid-century modern architectural condo development, will give patrons a peek inside what is considered the original "Desert X" of Rancho Mirage. Melissa Riche, author of "Mod Mirage" and founder of Preservation Mirage, will also hold a talk to discuss Rancho Mirage homes that have been lost to demolition and aggressive remodels since the 1980s.
