Real estate agents are thinking the n(^^ ban on disposable containers on the Comal and Guadalupe rivers in New Brauntels could mean good things for real estate along the unregulated portion of the Guadalupe below Canyon Dam.
"This could have a huge impact on real estate," said Karen VVeger Yarbrough ot Sun<»et Canyon Realty, a real estate agent who works in the Canyon I ake area.
Yarbrough said the lian, which prohibits
l>eer cans and other disposable beverage containers, is likely to push tubers to the unregulat^ areas along the Guadalupe outside of the city.
"The tubing outfitters and business« that cater to fhem vvill move with them, making riverfront or near-river prof)erty more valuable in the areas not in the city," she said.
"Most of the riverfront land has no restrictions, so the businesses will come and drive up the pricc*s. The tubing areas in Can\on Lake have been busy this year
despite the low water level. I could see it getting much better along with all c)f our other businesses around them."
She said she's swn it before.
"I know New Braunfels banned (^hort-tc'rm) vacation rentals in the City, now the Canyon Lake area prospers in that area.' Yarbrough said.
New' Braunfels City C^ouncii on Monday banned disposable containers on the i-ivers to reduce the amount of litter left behind by tubers.
The ban takes t*ffect on jan. 1
NAME OF SUBJECT
Schwamkrug Garden, 1440 N Walnut Ave.,
For decades, Schwannkrug Garden was a popular restaurant and German beer garden, a place to drink and eat outside on picnic tables and dance under the live oaks
In 1923, Hans Schwamkrug opened a downtown meat market in the Klappenbach building on South Seguin Street, according to "New Braunfels Sesquicentennial Minutes," edited by Roger Nuhn In 1948, "the market eventually grew to an eating establishmentnear Highway 46 "
A dance slab was dedicated in 1950 From 1966-1973, "the Cloverleaf Orchestra played in the garden on Wednesday evenings during the summer months,” writes local historian Alton J. Rahe in "History of Mission Valley Community."
After Hans died in 1958, his son Charlie took over In 1973, Schwamkrug's became "German Garden." Later, according to Rahe, the business was sold and renamed The Chambrée House Restaurant (1977), Bob Flume's Oak Countn/ Restaurant (1981), Schwamkrug's Steak House
119821, Live Oak Griir(2005) and Buddy's Backyard (2009)
Traces of old Schwamkrug Garden remain. A segment of oak floor inside the expanded restaurant shows its age, A deck was added, but customers still dine on picnic tables under the trees. The location of the old dance slab is uncertain.
A low limestone fence with square columns topped with knobs once enclosed Schwamkrug's parking lot. The front fence is visible in 1985 photographs, but later was replaced by sidewalks and curbs Part of the old stone fence still stands, with the last column and knob, on Ohio Avenue, alongside the present restaurant.
