Honors Hall

More than a building and meeting space. It’s a tribute for leaders and visionaries who have helped shape the place we call New Braunfels. It’s also a catalyst for those upcoming leaders and ideas that will continue in the tradition of progress.

Directions:
Honors Hall is located directly behind the Chamber of Commerce offices, at 390 S. Seguin Avnue. Parking can be found on the street, or in the adjacent public parking lots off Garden Street and Castell Avenue Entrances can be found in the New Braunfels Civic Center Courtyard and directly off of Garden St., halfway between S. Seguin Ave. and Castell Ave.

History:
The Honors Hall Award began in 1968. This award was created to honor those individuals who have participated in civic activities over many years. These individuals must be at least 50 years old. Whether they have received the Chairman of the Board Award or the Besserung Award, or are eligible for the other two awards, has no bearing on the selection. The Hall of Honor Award category offers a more lasting significance as it provides recognition for voluntary efforts benefiting the community through a permanent exhibit of the recipient’s photograph in Honors Hall.

A maximum of three recipients may be named in a calendar year. The recipients are named at the December Board meeting and presented a framed certificate at the Annual Banquet in January. The award is bestowed by the Awards Committee, which consists of six members serving six-year terms with a new member being appointed each year by the Chair of the Board. The member with the longest service on the committee is automatically the Chair.
