Sisterdale Texas History:
The town was founded on Sister Creek in 1847 by Nicolaus Zink, a German freethinker who surveyed New Braunfels for Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels. Other European freethinkers joined Zink. The town became one of the famous “Latin Settlements,” because many of the settlers were well educated and spoke Latin. The leader of these farmers was Ernst Kapp, and the circle included Ottomar von Behr, C. D. Adolph Douai, August Siemering, Julius Dresel, Dr. Julius Froebel, Gustav Theissen, and the Baron von Westphal (a brother-in-law of Karl Marx). John R. Bartlett, Frederick Law Olmsted, and Duke Paul of Württemberg visited Sisterdale and recorded their observations. The Sisterdale post office was established in 1851. By 1884 this farming community had a cotton gin, a shingle mill, a grocery store, and a population of 150. Some of the oldest buildings in town are located on the dance hall property, including the old stone fort which predates the Civil War. Sisterdale is located just north of the Guadalupe River at the intersection of FM 1376 (Sisterdale Road) and FM 473, 13 miles north of Boerne, 16 miles southwest of Luckenbach, 13.8 miles west of Kendalia, 12 miles west of Spring Branch, 13 miles east of Comfort, 32 miles east of Kerrville, and approximately 40 miles northwest of San Antonio, Texas.

Kendalia Halle (Dance Hall), 1903, Kendalia/Blanco, TX:
The hall was built by the Nicholas Syring Musical Club as a performance venue. The hall was built out of Oregon red fir which was shipped by railroad to Boerne, then brought to the site by horse drawn wagons. During its early years customers arrived by horse and buggy to attend a dance that lasted all night. A small area to the right of the stage was fenced off with chicken wire so nonpaying customers could watch the entertainment, but could not dance; paying customers also used this nonpaying area to bed down their children. There was a chain around the oak tree out front, where drunken customers were restrained until they became sober. The hall usually hosts live music and dancing one Saturday evening a month from 8pm to midnight. The doors open at 7pm; free BBQ served at 7:30pm. The hall sells beer, wine, sodas and water.
