Founded in 1999, the Historic Tennis Club Neighborhood (HTCN) community is located immediately adjacent to the downtown commercial area of Palm Springs and includes many architectural significant properties.

Complimenting the 240 single-family residences within the HTCN community, there are numerous condominium and apartment  properties and over 25 small, highly personable petite hotels. These hotels attract a large number of loyal, continuing customers to their facilities contributing to the economy of the Palm Springs commercial businesses.

The HTCN area is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Palm Springs; it has one of the first churches built in the area, located on Baristo Road adjacent to the Orchid Tree Hotel. Both of these facilities opened their doors in 1936. Pioneer Pearl McCallum McManus settled in the area and developed the Palm Springs Tennis Club in 1940. This facility brought world-class tennis to the Desert.

Overall there are eleven structures located within the HTC boundaries that are found in the historic registry. This area truly captures the magical essence of old Palm Springs providing pedestrians with the opportunity to step back in time.
