A Most Unique Pride Venue
Cabot's Pueblo Museum
The house and surrounding structures were self-built by Cabot Abram Yerxa (1883–1965), an early 20th-century homesteader in the Coachella Valley. It is named as "Cabot’s Old Indian Pueblo Museum" in its application for listing on the National Register Of Historic Places. The California State Parks Office of Historic Preservation lists it as "Yerxa's Discovery"
The centerpiece of the complex is a large, Hopi-style pueblo in the Pueblo Revival Style of architecture. The main building is a four-story, 5000 square foot (465 sq.m) structure with 35 rooms, 150 windows, 65 doors and 30 different roof levels. The pueblo and all the outbuildings on the site were built primarily from scrap wood and sheet metal all scavenged from the surrounding desert by Yerxa. It has a system of vents and shafts built into the walls to keep it cool in the summer
