The town of Gruene, TX sits between Austin and San Antonio and is a historic place. Their town motto is "gently resisting change since 1872" or something to that effect. It is small, quaint and old-fashioned and definitely full of character. I think I could hit a golf ball the length of the town - it's that small (and I'm not a skilled golfer). Anyways, I passed through there one night, and had a few minutes to spare, so I ran around quickly and snapped off a few shots. This is one of their historic buildings with their famous water tower in the background.
