About The Mesa Neighborhood
The Mesa is a historic neighborhood located on the Palm Canyon Mesa, (lowest slopes of the San Jacinto Mountains) in South Palm Springs. It boasts a collection of unique and eclectic homes originally situated to be protected from the desert winds.
Edward Fulford, a successful businessman from Los Angeles, established The Mesa in 1921.
