Deep in the Colorado Desert of Southern California lies the City of La Quinta. Tucked away in a cove surrounded by the Santa Rosa Mountains are 63 small houses. Many have a star or starlet-studded history.
The exceptional thing is that these Spanish Colonials were all built between 1935 and 1941. They are related by their modest size, white adobe-like exteriors, low, red-tiled roofs, and wooden lintels. Many of them only show the tops of their red-tiled roofs to the outside world.
Who built these homes? Who lived in them? Why are they sprinkled around the Cove without rhyme or reason?
