If you’re looking to get into the dance hall business, this could be a great purchase for you.

The Swiss Alps Dance Hall in Swiss Alps, Texas is over 100 years old. It was originally built for the German and Czech communities that had popped up in the area according to

It later became a destination for acts like Asleep at the Wheel and Bob Wills and modern acts like Roger Creager and Stoney LaRue. In between, you can get a flavor of German and polka music.

The current owner, Donna Ustynik, bought the dance hall in 2005, which had been closed for 25 years. After a year of renovations, they opened the dance hall. A year later, the restaurant was opened.

The Ustynik family is hoping that a “Texas, music-minded buyer to preserve this classic piece of music history and help entertain thousands of dancers for another 100+ years” will make the purchase.

As of this writing, the current bid is up to $99,500 which will include the dance hall, cafe and two acres of land. There is a unspecified reserve but the current bid does not match it.

You can see the listing on Ebay.
