Twin Sisters Dance Hall

"Mr. Max Kruger was responsible for building a dance hall and community center along with a bowling alley in 1869 that opened to the public in January 1870. These buildings were named The Twin Sister Hall and Bowling Alley. In 1967 the bowling alley burned to the ground and was later rebuilt in Spring Branch Texas. The Twin Sisters Dance Hall still serves to this day as a community center for weddings, family functions, fund raisers for charity, etc.
