The city of Rancho Mirage is located in the Coachella Valley in the shadows of the Santa Rosa Mountains. The Rancho Mirage became a part of the Palm Spring real estate scene in the 1940's, when the Magnesia Falls area was established. Popularity grew with the coming of the Tamarisk Country Club and the Thunderbird Country Club. The town of Rancho Mirage was incorporated in 1973 and has grown to a population of around 17,000. This resort town also boasts an additional 13,000 residents during the winter months, as Snowbirds migrate to the south to enjoy the warm California sunshine.

After the Civil War, this beautiful, unpopulated area was used as a trail thr...

Just a few days ago, President Gerald Ford died at his longtime Rancho Mirage home.  He was 93.  Today, the nation watched the 2nd day of tributes.  Highway 74 was lined with Palm Springs area residents.  Many of the residents had signs to help communicate their wishes to the family and to say goodbye to the 38th President of the United States.  The Palm Springs area became home to President Ford after he left the White House.  President Ford and Betty Ford help populate our beautiful valley and really put us on the map.  Betty Ford established her renowned dependency center in Rancho Mirage.  The Betty Ford Center is still a prominent center for any one with drug or alcohol dependency issues.   President Ford and Mrs. Ford have allowed all valley residents to feel we have a little some...
