FACTS ABOUT SAN BENITO COUNTY

San Benito County (population about 55,000) is located in the premier Central Coast region in between the Pacific Ocean and the fertile San Joaquin Valley. Hollister, the County seat, is located 45 miles south of San Jose, 95 miles south of San Francisco, 300 miles north of Los Angeles, and 40 miles east of Monterey. With its rich and colorful history, rural charm, diverse landscapes, lush farmland, fine wineries and proximity to the myriad recreational, educational and cultural opportunities of the San Francisco Bay Area, San Benito County is a wonderful place to call home.

COURT HISTORY

San Benito County Courthouse
Completed 1888

San Benito's third courthouse was a lavishly decorated building with an exterior modeled on the Farnese Palace in Rome and elaborate balustrades of polished red cedar within. The Hollister landmark withstood many earthquakes but was structurally damaged in a 1961 quake. The courts were moved into a quickly remodeled library while a new courthouse was constructed. The old courthouse was razed the following year.
