REAL ESTATE MCQUEENEY TEXAS - LAKE PLACID
REAL ESTATE - CANYON LAKE - REALTOR LAKE MCQUEENEY TX
Lake Placid - Located in
Guadalupe County between Lake McQueeney and Meadow
Lake. The pond area is 248 acres with a storage
capacity of 2,624 acre-feet. Most of the lake is
shallow with maximum depths of 30-35 feet near the
dam. A public boat ramp is located at Exit 605 off
IH-10 on the Seguin side of the river. Boating,
water skiing, jet skiing and fishing are allowed.
Lake Placid also offers angling opportunities to
include Largemouth Bass, Channel catfish, Crappie,
and Sunfish. The lake is home to many native aquatic
plants including cattail, pondweeds, American lotus,
spatterdock, and rushes.
Lake Dunlap - Located on the
northwest border of Guadalupe County near New
Braunfels, within an hour's drive of both Austin and
San Antonio. This 410-acre lake has a storage
capacity of 5,900 acre-feet. Maximum depth near the
dam is 40 feet. Boating, water skiing, jet skiing
and fishing are allowed. There is free public access
boat ramp under IH-35 in New Braunfels.
Canyon Lake - Construction of
Canyon Dam on the Guadalupe River Mile 303 began in
1958. It was constructed to serve two purposes -
flood control and water conservation. Flood
protection is provided to 157,250 acres of land
downstream from the dam. The high canyons of the
upper Guadalupe have a channel capacity of
40,000-50,000 cubic feet per second.
The channel on
the lower Guadalupe River has a capacity of only
13,000-30,000 cubic feet per second; therefore, the
lower Guadalupe River Basin had been especially
subject to serious flooding. The construction of
Canyon Dam on the edge of the Balcones Escarpment
has been very effective in protecting the lower
Guadalupe River Basin. Canyon Lake is not a constant
level lake and boat houses and docks are not allowed
on this lake. There are several public boat ramps
located around the lake. Boating, water skiing, jet
skiing and fishing are allowed.
Meadow Lake - Located in
Guadalupe County south of Seguin. The pond area is
153 acres with a storage capacity of 1,550
acre-feet. This small, narrow lake provides less
area for skiers and more undisturbed fishing for
anglers, including bait chunkers and trotliners.
Maximum depth is about 35 feet. Boating, water
skiing, jet skiing and fishing are allowed.

Arriving in Texas in the mid 1840s,
German farmers became the first settlers of what is
now known as Gruene, Texas. Ernst Gruene, a German
immigrant, and his bride Antoinette, had reached the
newly established city of New Braunfels in 1845, but
acreage was scarce. Thus, Ernst and his two sons
purchased land just down river, and Ernst built the
first home in Gruene in early fachwerk style. His
second son, Henry D. Gruene, built his home (now
Gruene Mansion Inn) and planted his surrounding land
Having become the number one cash
crop, the cotton business soon brought 20 to 30
families to Henry D.'s lands. Today, Gruene is once
again a thriving community, but for decades it was
little more than a ghost town. This changed the day
that Pat Molak, frustrated with big-city life,
wandered into town and began to breathe life back
into this piece of Texas history.
Molak purchased Gruene Hall in 1975.
A few unavoidable repairs were made to the Hall, but
little else was necessary. Left uncorrupted, the
6,000 square-foot, open-air dance hall became a
virtual magnet, a starting point for many of Texas'
up-and-coming performers, and once again, the heart
With the help of his friend Mary Jane
Nalley, he worked to preserve the authentic,
turn-of-the-century look and feel of Gruene by
purchasing and repairing several of the town's most
notable structures and transforming them into
thriving businesses. These developments seemed to
rekindle the spark of Gruene, and soon the town's
familiar charm began to shine again.

The San Antonio River
Walk is a public park, open 365 days
a year. It is a network of walkways
along the banks of the San Antonio
River, one story beneath
approximately 5 miles of downtown
San Antonio. Lined by bars, shops
and restaurants, the River Walk is
an important part of the city's
urban fabric and a tourist
attraction in its own right.
The River Walk winds
and loops under bridges as two
parallel sidewalks, lined with
restaurants, shops, hotels and more.
It connects the major tourist draws
from the Alamo to Rivercenter Mall,
Arneson River Theatre and La Villita,
the San Antonio Museum of Art, and
the Pearl Brewery.
The Paseo del Rio
Association is a non-profit
organization founded in 1968 to
promote, protect and preserve the
San Antonio River Walk, the number
one tourist attraction in Texas. The
Association accomplishes this
through the production of special
events along the River Walk
throughout the year and through the
publication of Rio Magazine, a
monthly visitor magazine. The
Association serves as an advocate,
facilitator, and moderator among the
business, civic, and governmental
communities on matters concerning
the River Walk.
More than 2.5 million people a year
visit the 4.2 acre complex known worldwide as "The
Alamo." Most come to see theold mission where a
small band of Texans held out for thirteen days
against the Centralist army of General Antonio López
de Santa Anna. Although the Alamo fell in the early
morning hours of March 6, 1836, the death of the
Alamo Defenders has come to symbolize courage and
sacrifice for the cause of Liberty.
The memories of James Bowie, David
Crockett, and William B. Travis are as powerful
today as when the Texan Army under Sam Houston
shouted "Remember the Alamo!" as it routed Santa
Anna at the battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.
The Alamo has been managed by the Daughters of the
Republic of Texas since 1905. Located on Alamo Plaza
in downtown San Antonio, Texas, the Alamo represents
nearly 300 years of history.
Three buildings - the Shrine, Long
Barrack Museum and Gift Museum - house exhibits on
the Texas Revolution and Texas History. Visitors are
welcome to stroll through the beautiful Alamo
Gardens. Just a short distance from the River Walk,
the Alamo is a "must see" for all who come to San

long served as the heart of the city. Each year the
world-renowned River Walk draws millions of

underway to restore and enhance 13 miles of the San
Antonio River both north and south of downtown.
