Melba Bennett

The Palm Springs Historical Society is a non-profit organization established in 1955 by Melba Berry Bennett. The Society operates two museums and a Research Center at the Welwood Murray Memorial Library.

The McCallum Adobe (built in 1884) and the Cornelia White House (built in 1893) are the two oldest buildings in Palm Springs. The Adobe hosts revolving and permanent exhibits plus a store. The Cornelia White house is staged to take you back in time. The Welwood Murray Memorial Library (1940) houses are Archives and Research Center.
