The man behind the legendary Cabot’s Pueblo Museum in Desert Hot Springs, Cabot Yerxa, will be the focus of the next Second Friday Lecture at the Old Schoolhouse Museum in Twentynine Palms. Cabot Yerxa was one of the first homesteaders in the Coachella Valley in 1913. Before permanently settling in Desert Hot Springs in 1937, Yerxa traveled from Alaska to Cuba. He began building his 5,000 square-foot home, with 35 rooms, 150 windows, and 65 doors at age 58. Judy Gigante is a docent at Cabot’s Pueblo Museum and will talk about this self-proclaimed desert rat. There is an optional dinner with Gigante at the 29 Palms Inn starting at 5 p.m. The lecture starts at 7 at the Old Schoolhouse Museum on National Park Drive. Admission is $5.
