Pronounced “green,” this tiny community on a crossing of the Guadalupe River was founded by Henry D. Gruene in the 1880s. This once independent town was a center for the farm economy of northern Comal County complete with its own cotton gin. The entire town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has experienced a revival as a tourist destination.
