Cabot’s Pueblo Museum preserves the rugged frontier spirit of the pioneer days in the Coachella Valley. It also preserves the history of the life of Cabot Yerxa. His was a life of astonishing adventure, travel, long work and individualism. The Museum is a unique Hopi inspired Pueblo hand-made by Cabot Yerxa over 24 years. This multi-level building includes 35 rooms, 150 windows and 65 doors, all crafted from found materials. The museum houses Cabot’s collection of Native American pottery, early 20th century photographs and artifacts from his Alaskan adventures. The museum grounds, including a picnic area, are beautifully landscaped with native plants and home to many rustic period items – early 1900’s tools, machinery and housegoods.
The museum also houses a Pueblo Art Gallery, a bookstore, and the famed sculpture “Waokiye”, a 43 foot tall Indian monument carved from a 750 year old Sequoia Redwood.
Guided tours of this historic landmark are conducted daily. The museum is available year-round for single tours, group tours and special events, and is open Saturday & Sunday.
