Gruene is a historic district located within the city of New Braunfels in south-central Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population of New Braunfels was 57,740. The district that is now Gruene was once a town and major cotton-producing center along the Guadalupe River. Today, it's primarily supported by tourism. Most of Gruene is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The city of Austin is about 40 miles north and San Antonio is 25 miles south. Canyon Lake is also just a short drive away. Gruene, which is pronounced like the color green, was founded in 1872 by the settler, Henry D. Gruene. His original Victorian mansion that he built still stands today and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a designated Texas Historic Landmark. Other historic buildings include Gruene Hall, a bar and dance hall built in the 1880s that became the social center for the town. It's the oldest dance hall in Texas and many singing legends have performed there over the years, including Willie Nelson, George Strait, and Lyle Lovett. Other things to do in Gruene include swimming, wading, tubing and rafting in the Guadalupe River, and sightseeing and picnicking along the river's banks. New Braunfels is host to two annual festivals; Wurstfest in November and Wassailfest in December.
