Gruene, Texas

This past Veteran's Day weekend I went with a friend to Gruene, Texas. Pronounced "Green", it's a very old German settlement that's "gently resisted change" since it's creation. The tiny town is basically 5 streets, with converted homes as shops, and a famous dance hall. (That night the headliner was Asleep at the Wheel.)

But what makes Gruene stand out is the beautiful sense of nostalgia and old-world charm the place gives you when you walk in. These next four pictures were taken at the general store.

Note: Those are old Texas license plates nailed to the floor.
