The Bleu Hen Crossing brings together three owners from several decades. The Cavender family first owned this building, sold it to the Hoover family who sold it to us. We have used Bleu has a middle name for our pets, and as a business name in the past. It turns out that the BHC (Bleu Hen Crossing represents B (us) and H (Hoover) and C (Cavender)! The long story is we liked the name Bleu Hen and as we drove through East Texas we tried out Bleu Hen Plaza, Bleu Hen Square, Bleu Hen Place...calling out the names as we saw the various signs along the road. We passed by a sign that was Crossing and we loved it! Bleu Hen Crossing.
We fell in love with Pittsburg and its rich history the moment we stepped into the historic downtown area. We commissioned a local artist to paint a mural on the side of our building (On the Bunn's Flowers and Gifts side). This mural features references to Pittsburg and the surrounding area. Stop by and check it out, have a seat on the bench, take a selfie. It is an artistic mural that depicts many of Pittsburg's finest people and achievements.
