About Cathedral City

Cathedral City, colloquially known as "Cat City", is a desert resort city in Riverside County, California, United States, within the Colorado Desert's Coachella Valley. Every other square mile of the city is part of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians reservation land. The city's name is derived from Cathedral Canyon located to the south of the city in the foothills of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. The canyon is said to have been named in 1850 by U.S. Army Colonel Henry Washington after deciding a rock formation of the canyon looked reminiscent of a cathedral.
