Cabot's Pueblo in Desert Hot Springs, California

Built by Cabot Abram Yerxa in Desert Hot Springs, California, Cabot's Pueblo (as it's now known) was constructed over several decades using salvaged items that he acquired throughout the desert. Yerxa opened his Hopi-style pueblo in 1945 with his inspiration found in the Pueblo Revival Style of architecture.

The odd shapes and layout of the structure is a result of Cabot using many of the salvaged pieces he found 'as is'. The pueblo boasts 35 rooms, 150 windows, 65 doors, and 5000 square feet of space. Also known as Cabot's Old Indian Pueblo Museum, the location houses some of Yerxa's original artwork, as well as American Indian and early desert homesteader artifacts.

It's said this bathtub was one of the few things Cabot bought new.
