People interested in Coachella Valley history will enjoy walking through two floors of exhibits at La Quinta Museum. The story begins with a diorama of the Cahuilla Indians. Then it explains through vintage photographs the area’s early development and how it evolved into a popular resort community. Other major events are portrayed on a 32 foot mural by Andre Blanche. The museum is managed by the La Quinta Historical Society. It is housed in the former Palm Springs Land and Irrigation Company building. Constructed in 1935, this is the city’s oldest commercial structure.
