Seeking a spot about halfway along the drive from Houston to San Antonio where you might be able to kick up your heels — and hang your shingle? Look no further than the tin-roofed Swiss Alp Dance Hall on Hwy. 77 between Schulenburg and La Grange. The concert and wedding venue, which was built in the early 1900s but “remains very much as it was back in the 1950s,” was listed for sale earlier this week.
The site of performances by B.J. Thomas, the Drifters, The Triumphs, and many a polka band was run by the The Titejen family for more than 40 years; Kevin and Donna Ustynik bought the facility in 2005 from the Titejen estate. Included in the $1.13 million asking price: a separate 4-bedroom, 2-bath home with screened-in pool, the Swiss Alp Grill restaurant, a barn, and 25 percent of the mineral rights on the 24-acre property.
