FAQS & Welcome


This 455 acre park, established in 1906, is the home of Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center and Mount Hermon Association, Inc. (MHA). These grounds are developed and dedicated to the sharing of the Christian message to everyone, nurturing of  families and conducting Christian conferences for all ages. Historically, Mount Hermon properties have been used as a retreat for Christian refreshment and biblical encouragement. This focus continues today!

Our residents group called the Mount Hermon Community (MHC) is an independent organization for the purpose of friendship, self-help, communication, and safety/security serving the over 400 homes on the grounds. We work in cooperation with MHA. Annually, the MHC hosts two general community meetings (in Spring & Fall) and two social events (a winter Christmas dinner and a summer Family Fun Day) to which all Mount Hermon residents are cordially invited. Enjoy all that Mount Hermon has to offer: year-round hiking, creek trails, redwood viewing, swimming (during summer), books and gifts store, memorial prayer chapel, coffee cart, and snack shop.

Summer registration for limited use of certain facilities is available to MHC residents by the MHA for a reasonable fee. All property owners and residents are subject to the covenants, agreements, and Rules and Regulations of Mount Hermon Association. (Rules and Regulations are attached to your deed.)

For your ease in getting established, all utilities are by public or private contractor, except water which the owner contracts with MHA. An annual improvement fee is paid to MHA by homeowners.

Because many of the roads are narrow and winding, please observe the 15 mph speed limit throughout Mount Hermon. Please be aware of the County requirement for emergency vehicle access; blocking a road may result in potential liability. Please cooperate with the Pet Leash Law. Most mail is by Post Office Box, however, the Zayante area, and some others are served by post carrier from Felton.

Many of the residents are a part of NextDoor which is a community based social media. We recommend everyone be a part of it.

Question: How can I get involved with Neighborhood Watch in my area of Mount Hermon?

Neighborhood Watch is a national crime prevention organization to help communities like ours be aware of how to prevent crime, what to do when it happens, and provide resources like signs and stickers to thwart intruders. Anyone who lives within the 455 acres of Mount Hermon is a part of Neighborhood Watch. There is no formal membership. Neighborhood Watch was started around 30 years ago, but not much was done organizationally for a 15 year period until 1999 when Reggie Coates began to oversee it. Now, there are signs up at every entrance of the park, stickers & pamphlets available for every home, and meetings are held twice a year coinciding with our Community Meetings (October & April). Sheriff officers regularly speak at these meetings to enlighten residents of crime prevention efforts. In order for you to be actively involved, get to know your neighbors, their names, addresses, and phone numbers. Communicate often and take special care to note when they are gone. You can make a difference by “watching” out for others and caring about the safety of our community. Visit www.nnwi.org for more information.

  1. Hello, Reggie,
    In the “rules and regulations” section, there is reference to “the Board” which is described as elected individuals. Parliamentary procedures typically include notifications of board meetings and topics for discussion. I have not seen any public announcements about board meetings or opportunities for members of the community to voice concerns. Will you please provide more information about this?

    Thank you,
    Laurie Shipley
