Downtown Hollister Historic District: 214,216, and 218 Fifth Street

This historic two-story commercial building on Fifth Street was constructed around 1923. It is also a contributing building to the Downtown Hollister Historic District, which is in the National Register of Historic Places. Apartments are on the second floor, while Salon 218 and another hair salon occupy the first floor. The two shops are separated by an arched entry way to the top floor.

The building has some enchanting old-fashioned features, including the tiled cornice and the arched doorway. The shop on the right (214 Fifth Street) looks to have maintained much of its 1920s design. It still has a transom above the doorway. According to the National Register, the shop of the left (218 Fifth Street) was remodeled in the 1980s.

Being that this building has gorgeous blue accents, I've hitched my wagon today to Blue Monday,  hosted by Smiling Sally.  Come check out other participants with me by clicking here.
