Old-Time Texas Dance Hall Burns Down
This wasn't supposed to happen to a 145-year-old country dance hall in Texas. After all, the song is called "Disco Inferno."
Yet burn it did in Fredericksburg early Monday morning. Turner Hall, which hadn't been a commercial establishment in some time but was still the pride of the town, was completely incinerated, a total loss.
In the local paper, the history of the structure was reflected upon. Read it and weep, as this is a piece of history turned to cinders.
Video from a local resident shows the fire in action.
What was left was rubble.
