John White, Architect, 1924

— Listed on the National Register of Historic Places —

City of Berkeley Landmark
designated in 2004
The Hillside Club was founded in 1898 by Berkeley women intent on preserving the natural beauty of the hills. It soon became an influential cultural force. North Berkeley's curved streets with old trees, exposed rocks, numerous parks, and walking paths are among the legacies of the Club's work.

This building replace the original Bernard Maybeck clubhouse that was destroyed by the 1923 North Berkeley Fire. Maybeck's brother-in-law, John White, designed this shingle-style building to reflect the architectural intent of the original. The asymmetric two-story building, with its monumental fireplace, is built of materials indigenous to the area.
