The development of Palm Springs’, Tahquitz River Estates (TRE) has been long and fascinating history since it’s first Spanish Revival Homes that were built in the 1930s. Most famously know for it’s 1940s Paul Trousdale Homes along it’s namesake Tahquitz River Wash, TRE also has been home to many, many famous residents including enigmatic Dr. William Scholl, the foot care specialist who in 1948, purchased a very large compound, which he named “Casa de Rancho”, that straddled both Morongo and Sonora Roads.
The Tahquitz River also known locally as “the Wash” was originally funded by Pearl & Austin McCallum around 1947, to provide flood control. Prior to this, development was too risky but, with the canal in place, developers including Paul Trousdale were enticed to the area.
