Downtown Hollister Historic District: 625 San Benito Street

Recognize the decorative cornice and those interesting urn-looking things on this building? Where do think this commercial building is on the main street in Hollister?

It's the two-story commercial edifice at 625 San Benito Street, next to the Veterans Memorial Building.  The DeLux Salon is on the ground floor. Surprised? It was constructed around 1908 and is one of the contributing buildings to the Downtown Hollister Historic District. From the front, it looks like a small building. But, just peek around the corner, and you'll see that it is a relatively good-size building.

The next time you go by 625 San Benito Street, check out its two bay windows. One is above the salon, while the other is on the side of the building.
