History belongs to everyone. The past has a fascination that if hidden crumbles into obscurity. It is our purpose at the Desert Hot Springs Historical Society to provide a window into that past so that all viewers can be enriched and stimulated by those who came before us.

Here you'll find a growing collection of pictures and stories that document the founding and development of Desert Hot Springs.

All are invited to join us for our monthly breakfast meeting every first Thursday, 7:00 a.m., at the Sidewinder Restaurant & Grill on Pierson Blvd.

We also welcome the public to three special events per year for the education and betterment of the community. These Soup Suppers take place on the third Thursday of October, January and April. After a buffet of soup, salad, bread and dessert selection, a program is presented on some aspect of the history of the area.
