1995 Camino Monte off Palm Canyon and La Verne Way;

Despite having been heavily damaged by fire just a few years earlier, the Ship of the Desert was named an historic spot by the City of Palm Springs in 2007.

In 1998, Trina Turk and her husband, the photographer, Jonathan Skow, bought the Ship of the Desert.

Fire occurred c. 2000, damaging 75% of the interior; the curved staircase, original kitchen stove, and metal windows survived the blaze.
