Downtown Hollister Historic District: 452 San Benito Street

Today, I feature the second of the two last contributing buildings to the the Downtown Hollister Historic District. Remember, contributing buildings cannot be demolished without meeting certain requirements.

Once upon a time, the bottom floor of this beautiful historic building on the northwest corner of San Benito and Fifth Streets was occupied by Bank of America. Various offices once filled the second floor. Today, this building is now home to an event venue called The Vault, which has banquet rooms on both floors perfect for weddings, class reunions, and other special events.

Built around 1930, this two-story building has many elegant features, from the various ornamental trims at the top of the building, between the windows,  above the window and door frames on the first floor, and else where. Those golden doors are pretty cool, too.

Have any idea what the final contributing building to the Downtown Hollister Historic District may be?  Come back tomorrow and see if you're right.

I'm hanging out at Our World Tuesday. Please click here to check out other posts by bloggers around the world.
