It has been a busy summer in Palm Springs, and we have been selling lots of houses at the Paul Kaplan Group! We are looking forward to a very exciting season in our new offices at 1117 N Palm Canyon Drive. Continuing with my photos of the Palm Springs Class 1 Historic Sites, we are now up to #8 - the Palm Canyon Stone Street Marker on the corner of N Palm Canyon Dr and Chino Dr. If you have parked near Koffi, you have probably noticed this historic street marker. It was designated a Class 1 Historic Site by the Palm Springs City Council on November 7, 1984.
According to the plaque: This is one of the original street markers used following the incorporation of the City of Palm Springs in 1938. Dr. J. Kocher and Philip Boyd, then secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, had renamed the streets in 1930 at which time Main Avenue became Palm Canyon Boulevard. Constructed of native stone and mortared with cement, this marker is the last one of its kind remaining in Palm Springs.
Next on the list of Palm Springs Historic Sites is Lykken's Department Store.
