Old Town was inspired by one man’s dream. After traveling throughout Europe and living in small coastal towns in Northern California, developer Wells Marvin moved to La Quinta with his family in 1997 to develop new homes. They brought with them a love of art and the California Renaissance architecture that defines the beauty of Santa Barbara, Carmel and the historic La Quinta Hotel and Resort.
With a commitment to the best of California craftsmanship and lifestyle, Wells spent seven years building Old Town. He created what has become La Quinta’s Main Street, a gathering place that reflects the romance and ambience of the promise that first inspired it.
