HISTORYThis house was built by Mr. and Mrs. Herb Hall to occupy in
their later. Mrs. Hall "was born Annie Lou Houston in Mason, Texas and was
brought to Boerne at the age of 10 years to live with her aunt, Era Davis. She
attended the Royal School and later she went to work at Ye Kendall Inn
[proprietor R. L. Hilman] where her grandmother, Minnie Spears, was the
cook.....after leaving the employ of the Inn, Annie spent some time working for
H.O. Adler of Boerne and the W.E. Simpson family in San Antonio......It was
during this time that she met the famous jazz musician, Herb Hall. They were
introduced by cousin Minnie, and after a courtship they were married and Annie's
travels began. She was literally on the road for the next 46 years before
returning to Boerne to settle down in 1977. Her longest stop was in New York
City where Herb played at Eddie Condon's and Jimmy Ryan's, two famous jazz clubs
in the Big Apple."--excerpted from the Dec. 5, 1984, Hill Country Recorder
article by Corky Corcoran, "A Christmas Visit With Annie".
Herb Hall is a well-known clarinetist who has played Dixieland with many popular bands one of which was Jim Cullum's band of San Antonio.
After Herb Hall died in 1996, Annie moved to California.
