The Story of June Hill
June Hill Robertson McCarroll arrived to the Coachella Valley in 1904 as the nurse wife of the regional leader of the Southern Pacific Railroad. Over time, her skills advanced and she became the lone physician in the eastern portion of the valley as well as the host-in-residence of the Southern Pacific Depot Station & Hotel, the area’s only proper lodging.
June Hill never wavered from her commitment to ensuring that all guests of the Depot had an exceptional experience. Known as the “hub of the valley,” the Depot was the center of all social life in the desert, with a formal dining room and Friday night dances.
A renaissance woman who was thirsty to learn and improve her surroundings, June Hill famously stumbled upon an idea that would become her most lasting legacy. On a medical call in Indio, a driver coming from the other direction ran June Hill off the road. This incident birthed for her the idea of painted lines to separate traffic on roadways, an advancement that she championed all the way to Washington, D.C., ultimately to see it adopted throughout the nation’s roadways.
Today, June Hill’s Table strives to honor June Hill by creating locally inspired dishes that challenge the status quo and always keep you wanting more.
