About: The Gillen Pond is a dream come true for our grandparents, the late George and Mary Gillen. In 1980, this house was built by many members of the Gillen family along with their friends. This house was originally built for their retirement years with the hopes that it would one day become a gathering place for future Gillen generations. Family was of utmost importance to George and Mary. The Gillen grandchildren now want to share their experiences with you and enable you to build a lifetime of memories with your family.
