Comfort History  

 Comfort Texas circa 1900 - A Stay in Comfort Guesthouse Comfort was established in 1854 by German immigrants, who were Freethinkers and abolitionists. Wearied by their journey from New Braunfels, the small group was so pleased by the picturesque site and pure water that they named it "Camp Comfort."

  The downtown area is possibly one of the most well-preserved historic business districts in Texas. There are well over 100 structures in the area dating back to the 1800s, and seven of them were designed by the noted architect Alfred Giles. With its abundance of vintage structures, much of the midtown area is on the National Register of Historic Places.

  Comfort is also known for a tragic event that took place during the Civil War.  The Treue der Union Monument ("Loyalty to the Union") was dedicated in honor of 35 men who died at the Battle of the Nueces, which took place because they opposed the state's secession from the Union. The German settlers were killed on their way to Mexico during the Civil War. They were attacked by Confederate forces near Brackettville on August 10, 1862. The bodies were not buried and the bones were retrieved and placed here in 1865. The monument was erected in 1866.
