Join the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation for a tour of Frank Sinatra's beautiful "Twin Palms" estate, designed by modernist architect E. Stewart Williams in 1947. With the help of PSPF, the home was designated a Class 1 Historic Site by the city of Palm Springs in March 2011 and has been described as "great midcentury design combined with Hollywood lore." This is a self-guided tour but a PSPF board member will give a brief talk about the architecture and history of the house. (Photo courtesy James Haefner)
