Indian Canyons 

Once the exclusive domain of the Agua Caliente Indians, development began on the Indian Canyons Neighborhood in the early 1960s and the first golfers teed off at the Canyon Country Club golf course in October 1962. The iconic clubhouse was designed by famed architects Donald Wexler and Ric Harrison. The Canyon Country Club, now known as the Indian Canyons North Course, was the first 18-hole golf course in Palm Springs. (The O’Donnell golf course, also located within Palm Springs city limits, dates from the 1920s but is a 9-hole course.)

With the Canyon Country Club and the newly opened Canyon Hotel Racquet and Golf Resort serving as its anchors, the Indian Canyons Neighborhood was born. Orange County developer Harry Kelso was brought in to create high-end homes and condominiums of varying designs and models, as were Arizona builder Paul Butler and Roy Fey of Fey’s Canyon Estates in Palm Springs. Harry Kelso and his work in our neighborhood, where homes were built primarily from 1963 to 1970. Other architects and builders in the area include well-known mid-century architects Stan Sackley and William Krisel.

 

 

The allure of the Indian Canyons Neighborhood, then and now, is our location in the wind-free south end. Many Hollywood celebrities have made the Indian Canyons Neighborhood their home over the years including Fess Parker, Chuck Connors, David Janssen, and Walt Disney, who donated the spectacular fountain that is located between holes 9 and 18 on the North course. For more information on the many celebrities who called our neighborhood home, check out “The Best Guide Ever to Palm Springs Celebrity Homes,” by Eric G. Meeks.

Palm Canyon Drive. (http://www.palmspringshistoricalsociety.net)

As we witness the ongoing transformation of our downtown area, the Indian Canyons Neighborhood, with its rich history, will continue to evolve in new and exciting ways. Thank you for being a part of our progress.
