Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Hill-Harbison House Fund

The idea for a community facility originated in 1935 when Barbara Hill led the effort to build a Girl Scout clubhouse.  What was then called the “San Marino Girl Scout” House opened its doors for the first time on October 13, 1935. Today Hill-Harbison House continues to serve 200-400 youth per week including local Girl Scout troops, National Charity League San Marino and other community groups. The facility offers several large meeting rooms, two kitchens, handicapped accessible restrooms and lovely grounds, and is also available for private rental. Gretchen Shepherd Romey, president of Hill Harbison-House and former Girl Scout leader, states: “Partnering with PCF makes a lot of sense. Our all volunteer Board is constantly hard at work raising funds in order to maintain and make important improvements to this community asset. We want the nest egg we created to continue to support Hill-Harbison House in the future. PCF will help us achieve a secure diversified investment portfolio with professional oversight.”
