Dancehalls and longhorns

This Gruene (pronounced 'green') dancehall, built in 1878 and about an hour east of Austin, is the oldest in Texas. I've made a deal with another geography Masters student who's writing her thesis on how European ethnicity affected dancehall structure - she drives me out to ranches, and I'm company at a dance hall on the way back. Hoo-rah for honkytonk!
