The Hollister Free Lancer

May 16 to May 22 Theme: The Little Details in Downtown Hollister

Once upon a time this used to be the icon for the Hollister Free Lance. Pretty cool, isn't it?

You can find this little plaque on the building on San Benito Street (near South) that's now home to Java Bagels. I'm guessing that the newspaper used to have offices there until it moved to Sixth Street. The local newspaper has been around since the late 1800s. Click here if you'd like to read the December 10, 1886 issue.


  1. Hi Susan!
    I have a mission for you, should you choose to accept it. Check out this link to Hometown Pasadena to see some historic "signs of the times" denoting businesses that are no longer present but whose signage remains. I wonder if downtown Hollister has anything similar:

  2. Wonder Wanda, I like the mission. I shall be keeping my eyes open for signs throughout the county. If you have any tips, please let me know.
