Hackett House

A Tempe gathering place that encourages social connections, offers educational programs, and raises funds to support Tempe Sister Cities.

“Great food…great friends…great causes”

Hackett House was built in 1888 in what is now the heart of downtown Tempe. This historic building is both headquarters for Tempe Sister Cities and home to events and programs that serve the children of Tempe and the community at large.
