About Nob Hill Association


Who We Are

The Nob Hill Association (NHA), Dedicated to Strengthening Our Neighborhood Through Community and the Nob Hill Foundation (NHF), are non-profit corporations dedicated to the preservation and improvement of the Nob Hill neighborhood and of Huntington Park. NHA and NHF also focus on the enhancement of public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of this historically significant area of San Francisco.

We Are History

The Association, the oldest neighborhood association in San Francisco, was formed in 1928 by a group of concerned residents who wished to maintain and improve their unique neighborhood.

We Are People

The members of the Nob Hill Association and the affiliated Nob Hill Foundation care passionately about their community and those who comprise it. The Associations Officers and Board of Directors are all volunteers. The Association boasts members from all parts of San Francisco and many parts of the United States and overseas. Anyone who shares the Association’s goals is invited to join.

We Are Neighborhood

Located atop one of San Francisco’s highest hills, Nob Hill is home to numerous diverse communities. Committed to the beautification of the neighborhood, the Association “adopted” Huntington Park in the early 1970’s and has contributed significantly to its renovation and ongoing maintenance, including the complete restoration of the famed Fountain of the Tortoises which is the focal point of this beautiful park. To inaugurate the holiday season, the Association hosts the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in the Park. Nob Hill is home to one of San Francisco’s most imposing landmarks, Grace Cathedral. Tucked away on Jones Street between Sacramento and Clay is the intimate Jones Street Water Tank Garden that the Association helped renovate and to which the Association continues to provide maintenance support. In the summer of 2014, after many years of fundraising and planning efforts, the Association successfully renovated the Children’s Play Area in Huntington Park.

We Are Business

All visitors to San Francisco come to The Hill which is home to some of the world’s most beautiful and renowned hotels and restaurants as well as a mecca for shoppers. The Association’s Business Members significantly support the Association’s projects and contribute immeasurably to the quality of life on Nob Hill.
