Gruene Hall

Gruene (Green) was once a significant cotton producing community along the Guadalupe River. Now it is part of New Braunfels, Texas and primarily a tourist attraction.

In 1845 Ernest Gruene, a German immigrant, and his two sons, purchased land and began building a community as they grew the number one cash crop for the area, cotton.

Gruene Hall became the center of the community’s social life and is the only business that survived the Great Depression and has never closed.
