The North Shore Yacht club was the whimsical design of noted architect Albert Frey, who just happened to be a resident of the Coachella Valley. Completed in 1958 by developers Ray Ryan and Trav Rogers, North Shore Beach Yacht Club was one of the largest marinas in Southern California and carried a price tag of million. Celebrities like The Beach Boys, Jerry Lewis, and the Marx Brothers partied there and / or docked boats at the marina. - The Salton Sea Chronicles Renovation of the old Yacht Club on the North Shore of the Salton Sea; the Albert Frey building will be restored and turned into a community center and child care facility. The .5 million project will create 80 construction jobs. - The Desert Sun A promotional video for the Yacht Club in its heyday - check out how nice this place once was: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTNuRxQaEEQ The Salton Sea is an incongruous sight: a huge body of water in the middle of a desert. And with good reason. California's largest lake was created purely by accident in 1905 when floodwaters from the Colorado River burst past a series of dams and settled in a naturally salty depression more than 228 feet below sea level. Ever since, the lake has been a Southern California oasis, rich in wildlife. Its future, however, is in doubt. The Salton Sea was once a popular place for boating, swimming, fishing, etc., but an increase in the salt level of the water caused large numbers of fish to die and the water became foul. This, in addition to a couple of hurricanes in the 1970's, caused the communities surrounding the sea to deteriorate.

As anyone who has ventured inside recently has noticed, the old asbestos floor and ceiling tiles - as well as the old drywall - have been removed. The East Valley Historical Society and the county (Riverside?) have .5 million in funding to complete the renovation. The building was actually intact as recently as the early 1990's before it was boarded up and eventually fell victim to scrappers and vandals. The building is otherwise structurally sound, however. When the renovation is complete, the building will reopen as a museum and community center. Check out this vid of the club in its heyday: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTNuRxQaEEQ
