Located just south of Branson, the burgeoning city of Hollister is rapidly expanding with a diverse population. Whether you’re a college student or a new family seeking a starter home, Hollister welcomes you warmly. The city is home to Ozark’s Technical Community College and the private institution, College of the Ozarks. The unique aspect of the College of the Ozarks is its foundation where students engage in real jobs at the college to fund their tuition, allowing them to graduate debt-free. Hollister is witnessing continuous growth, with new businesses and homes being constructed annually. The city is dedicated to fostering a “developer-friendly” economic development culture. The original “Downing Street” storefronts showcase a blend of antiques, restaurants, and businesses. These locales host city festivals throughout the year. In addition to these local gems, Hollister boasts major chain businesses such as Lowes, Herman Lumber, and Harter House. Living in Hollister offers the best of both worlds – the genuine hospitality of the Ozarks combined with the conveniences of a big city.
