     History
    The Order of the Sons of Hermann in the state of Texas (also known as Hermann Sons) was the largest fraternal insurance benefit society headquartered in Texas. The group originally started in New York City in 1840. The first lodge in Texas was founded in 1861 and was located in San Antonio. On March 27, 1890, the Texas grand lodge was formed, consisting of Harmonia Lodge of San Antonio and seven other newly formed lodges in Austin, Taylor, Temple, Waco, La Grange, Brenham, and Houston. This particular hall was built in 1960 and in 1970 they added another building which included a large banquet hall, snack bar , and a kitchen along with numerous small offices. I couldn't find any info that was recent enough to determine when the place shut down but the owners changed in 2008 so it has probably been shut down a least a couple of years.
