TOWER HOMESTEAD IN TWENTYNINE PALMS PART OF REACH-OUT PARADE OF HOMES

All six homes have been selected for Reach Out Morongo Basin’s February 18 Parade of Homes tour. For 14 years, this fundraiser has paid for services to local seniors and disabled residents. Today we continue our preview returning to Twentynine Palms. Here’s Mike Lipsitz with an inside look at another standout residence featured on the tour…
The Parade of Homes is a self-guided tour of six remarkable residences. Today we preview the Tower Homestead, one of four featured historic homes in Twentynine Palms. First built in Pasadena in the early 1800s, the home was moved to its present location on the back of a Model T in 1929. Owners Herb and Lily Tower made do without running water or electricity. The abode is much more accommodating for the present-day owners, the Tower’s granddaughter Robin Anaya and husband Manuel. They operate the Tower Homestead as a guest ranch. It is filled with authentic memorabilia and antiques reminiscent of the ‘Old West.’ The grounds feature covered porches and entertainment areas, an in-ground salt-water pool with cabana, horse stables and corrals, open air sleeping areas, and more. Tickets are $25 and include a tour of all six homes, plus live entertainment and lunch at the Park Rock Cafe in Joshua Tree.
Parade of Homes tickets are now on sale at Reach Out Morongo Basin, the Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms chambers of commerce, The Desert Trail, Z107.7 studios in Joshua Tree and at other locations throughout our Morongo Basin.
