borrego modern
The purpose of this site is to promote the appreciation and preservation of the mid-century modern architecture of the San Diego County desert community of Borrego Springs.

Located just an hour and a half from San Diego, and two hours from Los Angeles, Borrego Springs is a Southern California resort community largely developed during the 1950’s and surrounded by the Anza Borrego State Park, the largest state park in the United States. Borrego Springs, like it’s better known sister to the north of Palm Springs, has been a retreat for artists, actors and architects.

Unlike Palm Springs however, Borrego remains less crowded, more natural, less developed and offers life at a slower more leisured pace. This site, and its information is a work in progress and will continue to evolve. We hopeyou will contribute your thoughts, ideas and knowledge of Borrego’s past and help. It’s a legacy that should we chose to reserve, will provide great enjoyment for the future.
