If you’ve been to Gruene, you know it’s one of the most charming cities in Texas. Historic and welcoming, it hosts thousands of visitors a year who come to see its many attractions and shop during Gruene Market Days. But many of those people, and even more who already live in Texas and near the Hill Country, can’t settle for a short visit. For them, homes for sale in Gruene provide the opportunity of a lifetime to own in this coveted area.
Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Gruene was settled in the late 1800s by German cotton farmers, but was severely impacted by the boll weevil crisis in the 1920s, and the Great Depression in the 1930s. The town was brought back to life in the 1970s and many of the original structures were restored including some of the original settlers’ homes, like what is now Gruene Mansion Inn and Gruene Haus.
Gruene is actually a small historic town that’s located within the New Braunfels city limits, so buying a home in Gruene puts buyers within great proximity of area hotspots. Imagine being able to: Spend the afternoon strolling among its picturesque streets; experiencing why Cantina Del Rio was voted Best Margarita for six years or having a glass of wine at The Grapevine, featuring one of the largest selections of Texas wines; enjoying a meal at The Gristmill, a former cotton gin and today one of America's Most Popular Family-Friendly Restaurants, as named by Urbanspoon; and wrapping it up with homemade fudge at Gruene General Store, one of the top 40 places to visit in Texas. And, of course, Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas, remains a prime spot for Texas live music seven days a week, with a mix of legends and up-and-comers.
