In the heart of Sleepy Hollow, at 1317 Butterfield Road, you will find our Community Center Clubhouse and Pool. Together they are the scene of many events and gatherings that make Sleepy Hollow the friendly, fun-loving place we call home, including the July 4th parade and all day festivities and summer evening poolside socials for all ages.
The clubhouse itself is home to scouts, civic committees and boards, fire safety training and disaster preparedness staging provided by the SHFPD, and is our polling place. At times the building hums with exercise classes, childrens team building events and parties, and special holiday events. It is also offered to rent on a space available basis for family celebrations, dinners, dances, classes, etc. Inquire here about rentals.
Our first articles of incorporation provided for the construction, care, and improvement of facilities to build community and help our community play and work. Construction of the Sleepy Hollow clubhouse and pool began in 1950 and was completed in 1956, with the contributions and volunteer labor of the men, women, and children of Sleepy hollow. Featured in a Sunset Magazine article of November 1956, the SHHA clubhouse became a model for other Bay Area communities.
The full spirit and cooperation of the homeowners almost forty years later became the inspiration for the remodeling and renovations of the clubhouse in 1985. Today the clubhouse and its huge beamed hall and grand old fire place are the keeper of over 65 years of shared laughs and loves, joys and jigs, toils and tributes, and dozens of bins of well-used decorations from celebrations and competitions past.
Almost forty more years since the last “reboot,” the activity calendar is still nearly full, there is a new share-a-book library and letter box for extra copies of the Sleepy Hollow Bulletin on the front porch, and we are once again rallying to the care and improvement of this treasure. Read more.
