Luckenbach took its name from one of the earliest German-Texan families, but it was August Engel who opened the first post office and general store in the 1880s. The town grew from there. Luckenbach Dance Hall was the town’s cultural center for decades for the German-Texans who lived there. Today, the hall is one of Texas’s best known performance and dance halls, drawing thousands annually from around the state and country.
