Roland Bishop Residence Unveiled

Sunday, January 20, 2019

The Roland Bishop Residence (1925, Dodd & Richards) was the site of a marvelous early evening PSPF event which celebrated the post-rehabilitation "unveiling" of one of the most important Italian Renaissance Revival structures in southern California. The Bishop Residence is the architectural "twin" of the adjacent William Mead/Samuel Untermyer Residence (today The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn). The rehabilitation included refreshed and restored hardware, wood, tile and metal finishes, in addition to new concrete flatwork. Both the Bishop Residence and The Willows were open for touring and tourgoers received a copy of PSPF's 80-page book, Desert Spanish: The Early Architecture of Palm Springs. Light hors d'oeuvres and sparkling wine were enjoyed by the more than 250 guests.
