The Curious Case of Casa Chiquita

A nearly 90-year mystery about the historical roots of the oldest known farmhouse in Rancho Mirage is solved thanks to the persistence of Stephen Follansbee.

Editor's Note: Writer Kay Kudukis chronicles how Stephen Follansbee raised the question to Rancho Mirage officials of his family’s claim regarding the 1932 Rancho Chiquito house following the publication of a story she wrote for the 2017 issue of R/M Magazine.
