Off-beat: Cabot's Old Indian Pueblo

This rambling, Hopi-style structure has 150 windows, 60 doors and 35 rooms. Built by Cabot Yerxa over a span of 20 years, it's stuffed with odd bits and pieces from his world travels.

Cabot's Old Indian Pueblo preserves the rugged frontier spirit of the pioneer days in the Coachella Valley. It also preserves the history of the life of Cabot Yerxa. His was a life of astonishing adventure, travel, long work and individualism.

This story is presented here in the words of Cole Eyraud, one of Cabot's long-time friends.

"Cabot Yerxa left a priceless legacy as a result of his inquisitive, imaginative and creative pioneering spirit. When he embraced the seemingly barren desert land of Southern California and called it home, a new chapter in American history began – one which should ever remind us of man’s tenacity and persistence.
