The Victorian "Pumpkin House"

This two-bedroom Victorian-style house on Fifth Street was built around 1900 for a young couple named L.H and Myrtle Barker, who were married the previous year.

The house is on the self-guided tour of historical houses in Hollister. It was recently on sale, and according to the property details, the Victorian was restored in 2003. It's known as the Pumpkin House because of its colors.


  1. This house looks pretty - I keep hearing that nursery rhyme - "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater . . . . . so he put her in a pumpkin shell . . . " d'ya know that one??? such a silly thought. - it's pumpkin season - which makes me think of my daddy - who loved pumpkin pie . . and would always recite another rhyme . . "P-diddle um-kin - P-diddle-eye - P-diddle-um-kin - Pumpkin Pie" . . . (thank you for being such a splendid friend) love & love, -g-

    1. I like your dad's rhyme better than Peter the pumpkin eater. I didn't like that one because it seemed like his wife was trapped by a looney. :-)
