Hollister is a great area to purchase a property for buyers that want to be close to Branson, the Airport, two colleges, both Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo as well as a selection of restaurants, shopping and near two hospitals. Hollister has many well established developments for residential and condos along both lakes.
The Branson Airport is located just south of Hollister in a large development called Branson Creek. It is convenient with nice houses and Townhomes and two nice 18 hole golf courses.
Hollister is home to College of The Ozarks which has made a name for itself as “Work Hard U” where students can work off their tuitions. It also is a huge supporter of veterans and celebrates veterans with honor.
Hollister also has Ozarks Technical College which has been growing steadily.
Hollister has both Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo. But there are major differences between these two lakes. Table Rock Lake is a warm lake, great for recreation and playing in the warm bath like summer waters. Table Rock has great fishing and pleasure boating and there are many properties, residential, townhomes, and condos along the shores with access to boat slips nearby.
Lake Taneycomo starts from the Table Rock Lake Dam. It draws from the bottom of Table Rock Lake which is one of the main differences between the two lakes. Lake Taneycomo is a cold water lake which is great for trout fishing, and canoeing but not popular for waterskiing.
Because of the difference of surface temperatures between the two lakes, Table Rock Lake is chosen more from the buyers over Lake Taneycomo. It is important to know the differences between the two lakes.
There are two hospitals within five miles from the City of Hollister. Cox Hospital has been established and is continuing to grow and Mercy Hospital is under construction. Both are affiliated with larger Hospitals in Springfield. We have lived in this Tri-Lakes area since 1985 and have seen it grow in many directions.
