Sons of Hermann Hall

The Sons of Hermann Hall in Dallas has a long and colorful history. The two Texas Sons of Hermann lodges in the hall today are Dallas #22 and Columbia #66.

Dallas Lodge #22 was chartered in 1890 as Uhland lodge #22. Columbia Lodge was chartered in 1893. In 1910 the then four Dallas lodges (out of necessity and, more importantly, unity) pooled their resources and built the hall at 3414 Elm. The grand opening was held in April of 1911. The Dallas Sons of Hermann Hall is a Texas Historic Landmark. We are very proud of it and hope you will visit soon.

We are very fortunate to have many life-long members of both lodges willing to share their memories of the Hall in days gone by. We hold the stories told by these members, some of whom first visited the hall as infants, as precious and priceless. The Historical Committee is assembling an extensive collection of Sons of Hermann Hall memorabilia. Come by and have a look! We'll post some of it here as the collection grows.

Please visit the Sons of Hermann Hall soon. Better still, join our family and become a member!

Directions & Parking
There is a small parking lot directly across the street from the Sons of Hermann Hall. This lot does not belong to the Sons of Hermann Hall and there will be a parking fee on some nights. You can park free on the un-metered portion of Elm street near the Hall and on some of the surrounding streets. Check the signs carefully! The Baylor Hospital Complex has kindly given permission for Sons of Hermann Hall patrons to park in the Baylor lots on evenings (after 5:00 PM) and weekends. Free parking in Deep Ellum is scarce so please help us by respecting reserved spaces, not blocking ramps and exits, and by not leaving any trash or containers in the Baylor parking lots. If you park in a metered space please remember that meters must be paid up to midnight SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. Unlike other areas, you must pay the meter every day of the week in the Deep Ellum district. Parking laws in Deep Ellum are strictly enforced. A few quarters are a lot cheaper than a parking ticket. PLEASE check the signs carefully and DO NOT park in reserved spaces or in the lots belonging to any any local business with "no parking" signs. (For example, Brake & Clutch across Exposition from the Hall.) Be sure not to park in any space marked "Reserved for Baylor Police." (Don't laugh - people do this!) If you park illegally your car will be towed very quickly which will ruin an otherwise great evening. Trust us: your car might be on a tow truck before the front door closes behind you. We have seen it happen! Towing companies in Deep Ellum are fast, ruthless, and expensive. Please don't take a chance. Most nights there is more than enough parking within a short walk of the front door. If you are unsure, please ask at the downstairs bar. Our side of Deep Ellum is a bit more peaceful than others but if you are at all concerned about walking to your car after a show please ask one of the Hall's member volunteers at the downstairs bar. We will be glad to escort you to a nearby vehicle.
