Hollister, a town with Central California independence and charm, was established by ranchers and farmers in 1872. Throughout Hollister’s history, people who have settled here have talked of being fortunate to reside in such a remarkable community. The land, like the people of Hollister, has strength and charm, far enough away from crowds to offer very competitive prices for undeveloped property, yet close enough to city conveniences to share a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Hollister is located in San Benito County 20 miles from Salinas, California. It has a population of 35,000 residents and covers over 6 square miles of land.
