New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 3, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas 6A O HeraldZeitung CJ Sunday November Heritage Exhibit brings 1930s New Braunfels back to life Dont miss it The 1996 Heritage Exhibit is once again ready for all to see The theme this year is The Thirties Winds of It is an authentic reproduction of earlier days in New Braunfels It is a history lesson with much appeal Joanna Lewis and Nancy Johnson cochairwomen of the Heritage Exhibit have put a lot of effort into the planning of this year long project They selected just the right people Wait till you see what they have done Youll see The House That Jack Built done by Loretta and Bob Atwood and their committee It had a Southwestern Indiantype architecture quite different for New Braunfels People in town ate there and saw Indian artifacts on display Youll see a display of speakeasiesbreweries done by Kathy Pfullmann and her crew The display includes a whiskey still captured by state authorities in Texas during Prohibition Kathy has directions for making moonshine whiskey posted One interesting statement in those directions says a shortcut to aging is achieved in some cases by adding a spoonful of snuff to each Ugh And did you know we had a country club here at one time Wilfred Weinheimer and his group have put together a scene that tells us about the club that opened in March 1932 located where the present Newks Tennis Ranch is It was interesting to read that the New Years dance held at the club that first year was advertised to begin at nine in the evening and last until five in the morn Lunch was served at midnight and music was by Don Amado and his musical gauchos Those who remember the Emmie Seele Faust Library back in the 1930s or 40s will see a scene that makes you think you just walked into that building again Susan and Manard Ivy and helpers did that authentic display You see all this and much more is going on at the Civic Center It will only be there until next Sunday Dont miss it A group of downtown residents got together and had their own Tour of They each believe that living in the downtown area is really neat They believe that there is a real advantage in being located in that area with much to see and do It is that bond that caused them to organize into this neighborly group There is a core group of eight However in the future they hope Roxolin that others will join them Their plan is to have a monthly gettogether with their first progressive dinner projected for January At last Sundays tour they first gathered at the residence of Wayne Rahe in the WrightRahe building on Seguin Avenue Then they toured Mark Lauers residence above the Plaza Diner which he The next stop was at Natalie and Jake Hartmans place above the Shepherd Shop on San Antonio Street Then the group went to Freddie and David Carrs home on Coll Street and next to the Earl Stein home in Stein Court Carol and Earl explained that the remodeled home had been an old brewery at one time The last stop was at Dee and Patsy McElroys remodeled and added onto home on Gilbert Street across from the Treetops Riverside Grille Pam and Jim Behling members of the group were unable to participate that day Their remodeled home is on Comal Street at the entrance to Stein Court Sandy and Robert Kclley were also unable to participate Their home is described as the lavender house on Gilbert According to members of the group it was a great time to get to know your neighbors to take time out from busy schedules and to be bound together by the common thread of downtown restoration It was like a farreaching block party It was fun And speaking of downtown Helen Hoffmann of the Soiree Club came up with a very clever game for members of that club It happened at the monthly meeting of the Soiree Club The invitation said come to a Soiree Don your walking shoes for a downtown hunt Gather at the Karbach Haus on San Antonio Street Members were divided into groups Helen then directed them on a hunt called Architectural Tidbits She had taken closeup photos of art dcco ornamentation on downtown buildings Those pictures were blown up and photocopied Each team had a different set of pictures They had to match the pictures with a building downtown a building between the railroad tracks and around the plaza Examples of features the teams found were names in the sidewalks a column of the courthouse a lion atop the Comal Flower Shop etc The first team back won the game The teams compared their findings as they regathered around the beautiful backyard swimming
