CELEBRATE THE NEIGHBORHOOD’S ORIGINAL DESIGN DETAILS!
Architectural historian Katie Horak will peel back layers of paint to reveal the story behind the lost color palette of the Ocotillo Lodge—the Krisel–designed complex that was the neighborhood’s first structure and the model for the color palette used in the 90 homes behind it which, along with the Lodge, comprise the neighborhood.
CELEBRATE WHAT MAKES TWIN PALMS UNIQUE AND QUIRKY!
Local author Eric Chiel will count down 10 little-known historical, architectural, and cultural discoveries about the neighborhood that never made it to history books.
