The Adobes of 29 Palms
by Pat Rimmington, Author, Historian
Join author and historian, Pat Rimmington, as she recounts the history of "The Adobes of 29 Palms". Long-time resident of Twentynine Palms, Pat Rimmington, was introduced to the area when she and her husband, Sid, purchased a home which turned out to be the oldest standing adobe homestead in Twentynine Palms. She began learning the history of the area when she volunteered to transcribe the taped interviews of early residents of this area for both the local library and the Joshua Tree National Monument (as it was then.) She is a charter member and past president of the Twentynine Palms Historical Society.
Sponsored by the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park and the Twentynine Palms Historical Society, this lecture is held at the Old Schoolhouse Museum, 6760 National Park Drive, Twentynine Palms, on Friday, May 12 at 7 pm.
This lecture is open to the public and costs $5 per person at the door.
The 2017 Twentynine Palms
will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 4 & 5.
This years theme will be announced soon.
