Walking Under Fourth Street

Yesterday, the Husband and I decided to go underground to cross Fourth Street. Huh? you say.

Yup. For those who've forgotten, or who had no idea, a pedestrian tunnel runs under Fourth Street. The southern stairway is in front of the former County Jail. I think it was built in the 1920s to provide safe passage for children who walked to and from school.

The Hollister Downtown Association has plans to renovate the tunnel, which includes installing lights and a security system. The group also wants to paint a mural that depicts the buildings that once stood where the new Superior Court is today—the home of Colonel William Hollister, after whom the city was named, Hollister Grammar School, and Fremont School.

For a moment after walking out of the tunnel and looking skyward, I was reminded of how I felt when I used to come out of the Embaradero Bart Station in San Francisco. I'm having a great adventure.

  1. Think you should look at the one I just posted, don't think you would get under it

    1. That's for sure, Bill!

      Dear Take 25 to Hollister Readers, Bill is from England and unlike us, they've been getting lots and lots of rain. Check out what he was talking about http://spudsdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2014/02/flooded-footpath.html
