Downtown Hollister Historic District: 427 San Benito Street


One of my favorite commercial buildings in the Downtown Hollister Historic District is located at 427 San Benito Street. I like the unique look of the cornice with it raised center and corner sections and the tiled awnings and the windows of the top floor. That part of the building reminds me of Europe. Italy, perhaps. What do you think?


The two-story historic structure is another contributing building to the Downtown Hollister Historic District. It was constructed around 1915. The storefront on the first floor, however, was remodeled in the early 1970s.  Cheap Seats Pub & Grub put up the baseball cap awning when it opened sometime in the 2000s. The baseball cap is another thing I like about this building.

  4. Nice and a little Spanish. The people on the top floor no doubt enjoy the transforming leaves of the tall trees they can see through their windows.

    1. The trees are probably a wonderful thing for them, as the view across from them is the parking garage.

    1. For the longest time, it was one of the few places where we could get a crafts beer on draft.

  7. I like the tiles on top of the awnings and the repeated square shapes. The arched entranceway softens the look,
