Gruene Hall – Gruene is an area located just within New Braunfels city limits which was created in the 1940a by German immigrant the Ernst Gruene family which is also the towns name. Also the name Gruene is pronounced ‘Green’. The Gruene led the way to build a community for the cotton farmers. This is the oldest dance hall in Texas built somewhere in the late 1878 by the Gruene as he started this community just outside of New Braunsfel Tx. Gruene Hall is still in business today with a saloon and dance hall where western swing is still happening. Many big name country singers have performed here like Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson to name a few. This image capture the water tower which stands behind the dance hall on a nice cloudy day.
