West End Park and Dance Hall
Felipe and Elisa Saenz Delgado were first generation Texans that established the West End Dance Hall and Baseball Park in the West end area of New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas beginning in the 1940s after World War II ended.
The West End Park was bordered by Grape Street, Katy Street, Hidalgo Street and the railroad, and was on approximately four acres of land. Felipe and Elisa’s story involves families that moved from Mexico because of the Mexican Revolution in the early 1900s to establish a better life in Texas.
They were hard-working immigrants that brought their customs and culture with them and passed these traits and culture to their descendants. Although the West End Dance Hall and Baseball Park no longer exists, the marker on Katy Street stands facing where the park was once located.
