The McCallum Centennial - Palm Springs' founding family.

"... they came unto a land In which it seemed always afternoon ..." — Alfred, Lord Tennyson
The founding of Palm Springs might be placed at that moment in time when the educated son of an industrious Scottish farmer stood near the Indian Village of Agua Caliente at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains.
