Gruene Hall

c. 1885. Seguin St. at Austin St.

Considered one of the oldest dance halls in Texas, the wood-frame rectangular hall has a simple false front that conceals the gable-ended roof. The interior is a single large space spanned by timber trusses with un-glazed openings on the side walls for ventilation. It remains a popular venue for Texas musicians.
