    Seekatz Opera House

    Seekatz Opera House

    The Seekatz Opera House was built in 1900 by brothers Louis and Otto Seekatz. It was designed to host a variety of entertainment venues but especially opera. The Seekatz hosted many local events until it was destroyed by fire in 1941. It was rebuilt the following year and has now been restored to its old splendor.

    The Henne Family opened a hardware store in New Braunfels in 1857 and built this impressive Victorian Commercial style building in 1893. This is the oldest hardware store in the state of Texas. Worth checking out. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
