In the Spring of 2012 Bob Dockendorff came across a copy of Palm Spring’s 100 Year book published by the Palm Springs Heritage Association. It became a model for the book produced jointly by the Morongo Basin and 29 Palms Historical Societies. As with the Palm Springs book, each page contains an essay about a single major local event in a given year along with a number of one-liners representing other events that took place both locally and around the world.
The Hi-Desert Publishing Company partnered with the two historical societies to print the book and generously provided each of the Historical Societies with 600 copies each to sell to interested people in the years to come.
Here at the Morongo Basin Historical Society, they’re available to non-members for $8.00
