Boom in Gruene
Not just new houses but new apartment buildings are springing up in Gruene, the former tourist beat of New Braunfels. Also, factories and warehouses. However, the tourist trade is still going on. During a weekend, the sheriffs" department deploys a deputy sheriff at the main intersection to regulate traffic. There are many shops displaying goods, clothes and accessories, household items and novelties. Gruene Hall, the music center, features at least one out of town band on a weekend. The restaurants attract many visitors. There is no end to this.
