Preservation Mirage began as an informal group of midcentury homeowners that met to exchange ideas and information about owning and preserving midcentury architecture. As the number of participants increased, so did the goals of the group. In late 2017, a board of directors was elected and the preservation group became a registered nonprofit.
Preservation Mirage seeks to promote preservation of important and historic architecture in Rancho Mirage. Specifically to:
- serve as an educational forum for preservation issues and ideas
- assist owners with gathering information about their homes, communities and historic sites
- interface with government agencies
- update members about preservation challenges and initiatives
