Downtown Hollister Historic District: 829 San Benito Street

The historic building at 829 San Benito Street is the southern point of the Downtown Hollister Historic District. Built around 1929, the edifice is an example of how owners may remodel a contributing building to a historic district. For many years, this was the location for Fortino's, a furniture and appliance store, which moved to Tres Pinos Road in the late 1990s or early 2000s. The front of the building had open windows so you could see the store products as you passed from the street. I don't recall it having an arched doorway and windows nor the the tiled roof above them. The remodel was handsomely done, don't you agree?

Today, the building is home to Nino Real Estate, the Community Foundation for San Benito County, and one or more other nonprofit organizations.
