Please join us for the third annual Meiselman Midcentury Homes Tour, a unique tour of beautiful modernist ranch homes built by Jack Meiselman (pronounced “MY-zill-min”) in the late ’50s and early ’60s. The houses are found throughout Palm Springs (often near Alexander-built neighborhoods) and primarily clustered in Little Beverly Hills, Sunmor, Sunrise Park, and Racquet Club Estates.
Meiselman built homes that were affordable yet unique from similar builders of the time. Each home has a master suite that is separate from the other guest rooms and galley style kitchens, often with a single skylight. Pools were side-loaded next to the house, adjacent to the neighbor’s carport, creating a layer of privacy. You’ll notice that roof pitches vary (flat, gable, butterfly and slant) but that the floor plans were exactly the same in each tract.
This is a self-paced driving tour with map and will feature at least 5 new Meiselman built homes. All proceeds from this tour will benefit Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, a 501c(3) non-profit organization, which manages and operates the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. More information about the shelter can be found at http://psanimalshelter.org/Meiselman
