Ten years after fire, Gruenau Hall ‘here for the long haul’

Ten years ago, the Yorktown Volunteer Fire Department responded to an early morning fire call on Gruenau Hall Road on Wednesday, January 17, 2007, only to find the historic Gruenau Hall totally engulfed in flames. The fire occurred during one of the worst winter ice storms to hit the area in several years and only two weeks after another Yorktown landmark burned down -- the Yorktown Primary School Building. The inferno may have left the dance hall in a pile of ashes, but it also instilled a fire in the hearts of those who lived in the Gruenau community -- to build the hall back to it’s original glory..

And so began a huge fundraising endeavor which included the impressive Gruenau Hall Gala -- which included catered dinners and fundraising auctions -- held at Nordheim Shooting Club Hall, in addition to the annual Gruenau Hall Feasts, which were held at Yorktown Community Hall in May and October until the new hall was finally built.

New option for dining in Cuero

Dining in Cuero just gained a new option with the recent opening of an Italian restaurant: La Bella Tavola Italian Grill & Pizza last month. The owner, Gasper Lekgaga, also has another Italian restaurant in Gonzales.

“We have a lot of clients here from Cuero,” Lekgaga noted in their decision to open a restaurant in Cuero. “Mr. Errol Dietze got me in contact with Mr. [Robert] Oliver and I got interested in the place, as well. We decided to come here, so Cuero people don’t have to come to Gonzales. We have been very successful in Gonzales.”

From the initial meeting with Oliver, plans unfolded to establish the restaurant at 213 N. Esplanade.
