Gruene Hall's legacy is more than being the oldest, continually operating dance hall in the State of Texas. Built in 1878, Gruene Hall is the oldest continually running dance hall in Texas, and the Central Texas birthplace to many great songwriters and musicians. Known throughout the world as a music venue, Gruene Hall has been instrumental in starting the careers of Lyle Lovett, George Strait, Hal Ketchum and others.
