Inspiration Point (aka The Promontory) – West Chino Drive

Inspiration Point

Inspiration Point, also known as The Promontory, is one of the Coachella Valley’s most visible landmarks. Located on the lower slopes of Mount San Jacinto above the O’Donnell Golf Course, Inspiration Point was constructed between 1934-1935 and is a physical manifestation of the legacy of Thomas A. O’Donnell, one of the most significant figures in the history and development of Palm Springs.

On December 13, 2018, PSPF submitted the 64-page Class 1 Historic Site nomination for Inspiration Point to the city of Palm Springs’ Historic Site Preservation Board. In July of 2018, the PSPF board of directors assigned the task of writing Inspiration Point’s Class 1 Historic Site nomination to Steve Vaught. (Photos courtesy Steve Vaught)
