Supporting the residents of Rancho Palmeras Estates since 1957

To ensure Indian Wells would remain a community characterized by distinctly fine residential/country club living and resort hotels, in 1957, E.M. "Pete" Peterson, who became the city's first mayor, established the first property owners association. Peterson's commitment to quality of life carried forward and still defines our neighborhood today.
