Cypress’s Tin Hall has found a new place to set up shop, according to an announcement posted to the venue’s Facebook page this morning. The 127-year-old dance hall will move its operations and its building to a spot at 16614 Spring Cypress Rd., just over 2 miles from its long-time location off Huffmeister Rd. to the east. The new property is across the street from the Cypress post office, next to Cypress Woods High School.
The venue writes that an auction, to be held this Friday at noon, will help finance the move and the building’s preservation. Tin Hall posted a subject-to-change list of the items up for grabs, including most of its interior decor and equipment, 5 “vintage” urinal troughs, and “all taxidermy, including the buffalo.” (The building, included on the posted flier, is not for sale.)
Tin Hall also announced plans to sell memberships at the new location, citing the venue’s 1880s origins as a social club. Membership will purportedly carry perks such as special access to VIP seating and parking, and discounts on tickets and rentals of the space.
MHI McGuyer Homebuilders President Gary Tesch told Shawn Arrajj that it plans to develop Tin Hall’s original 40 acres of land into single-family homes, starting some time this spring.
