James Logan Abernathy Residence Tour

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

For a second year, PSPF was proud to make the Abernathy Residence, usually only seen on small and exclusive architectural tours, available to a broader audience. Designed by midcentury architect William F. Cody for millionaire socialite James Logan Abernathy in 1962, the 4,680-square foot pavilion-style house has been featured in both Australia's Belle magazine and French Architectural Digest. The home features a stunning interior which is liberally appointed with rare midcentury furniture and decorative arts by a host of important French and American craftsmen and designers. Tourgoers received an excerpt from PSPF's 2004 out-of-print tribute journal The Architecture of William F. Cody: A Desert Retrospective and a full color reprint of the Belle magazine article.
