Random Facts About Palm Springs

In the 1930s, Hollywood stars were escaping to Palm Springs for their privacy and to escape the glare of public scrutiny. Hollywood was a very puritanical place, and a rumor of an extramarital affair or homosexuality would land a star in the rags. The power of gossip columnists with an insatiable readership was enormous. This fact made Palm Springs an oasis for Hollywood stars.

Palm Springs is famous for its art, and many of its streets and neighborhoods are dotted with colorful murals and doors. The city is currently working on a mural project, inviting different artists to fill city walls with art. You can find a list of the current displays on the Public Arts Commission website.

Historically, Palm Springs was named by the Cahuilla people as Se-Khi. In 1876, the Agua Caliente Reservation was established on this land, and alternating non-reservation sections were granted to the Southern Pacific Railroad as incentive to bring rail lines through the Sonoran Desert. In 1824, California soldier Jose Maria Estudillo recorded the existence of a hot spring in the region.
