Roland Bishop Residence Unveiled
Sunday, January 20, 2019
The Roland Bishop Residence (1925, Dodd & Richards) has just undergone an extensive and remarkable year-long rehabilitation and the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation is proud to host its unveiling. 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 includes refreshed and restored hardware, wood, tile and metal finishes, in addition to new concrete flatwork. Completing the environment, the residence has been extensively outfitted with period furnishings. Both the Bishop Residence and The Willows will be open for touring. This event is timed to allow you to experience both the stunning mountain views and watch the sun set over the mountains to the west. A copy of PSPF’s 80-page book, Desert Spanish: The Early Architecture of Palm Springs, is included in the ticket price. Light hors d’oeuvres and sparkling wine will be served. Event address will be provided upon ticket purchase.
