Q is for Quaint

The city of Hollister was officially incorporated as a city in 1872. It was named after Colonel William Wells Hollister, the man who sold his land to the San Justo Homestead Association, the group of men who founded the city.

Many of the houses built in the early years of the city still stand. As you stroll down the tree-lined residential streets of downtown Hollister, you can see various  architectural styles, including the pioneer, Italianate, Queen Anne, Craftsman bungalow, and Mediterranean Revival styles. Quaint as all get out.

I'm going through the alphabet this month as part of the A to Z Blogging Challenge.  Click here to check out some other A to Z Challenge participants.
