More Gruene

One of the major attractions in Gruene is Gruene Hall, a longtime music center where major bands often play and patrons dance. The floor is a bit warped. This hall will seat several hundred people at a time. It is a family place. Many well known musicians have played here over the years. Gruene Hall is surrounded by stores, many of them antique shops, which offer a variety of goods. There also are restaurants. One of the most popular restaurants is the Grist Mill, which is in a former factory building which has been remodeled. Gruene was formed as an agricultural center, but this soon proved to be unprofitable. However, the stores have survived and even thrived.
