Shop Locally: McKinnon Lumber Company—Happy 100th!!!!

Today is the 100th anniversary of the official establishment of the McKinnon Lumber Company in downtown Hollister!  Whoo-hoo!!

Everyone now, up on your feet. This hardware store, which stands on the corner of 7th and East Streets, deserves a happy, vocal standing ovation from us for its dedicated service to our community. It is the last of its kind in town. Hope it stays on forever and a day!

For more about McKinnon Lumber Company and its grand owner, John Barrett, check out these stories from the local newspapers:


  1. John Barrett must be truly lovin' you for such appreciation and I'm sure he deserves it. Sadly it seems that small businesses like this is almost old Americana these days. Great pictures into your little slice of heaven. Thanks. Also thanks for visiting my blog you found on Java's 40+ blog hop - I meet the nicest people there. Smiles.

  2. Thanks for stopping by this blog, too, Haupi. Born and grew up in this town. I really didn't think I'd be back living here after so many years away in metropolis. First thing I realized in my first few days back was how much I missed the open sky.:-)
