Gruene is home to Gruene Hall, Texas’ oldest continually operating dance hall, which was built in 1878 and now operates as a legendary music venue. In 1975, Gruene Hall was purchased by its current owners and has become an internationally recognized destination tourist attraction and major music venue for both up-and-coming and established artists. The owners focus on booking singer-songwriters and artists who play original material has provided fertile ground for many former “new talents” such as George Strait, Hal Ketchum and Lyle Lovett.
