Comfort, Texas. The town of Comfort was founded in 1854 by German immigrants looking for a better way of life than in the old country that they were used to. The German settlers found there home nestled in the beautiful hills of Texas hill country. In Comfort, you will find gently rolling hills, valleys, crystal clear rivers and creeks, all located around the surrounding area.

Comfort has the only Civil War memorial in the south. Dedicated to the memory of the German settlers who were "true to the Union" and were ambushed by a band of rebel soldiers, who shot them from hiding, instead of coming out and fighting face to face. After the Civil War, the bones of the heroes were collected and this monument was erected in their honor by their families. It is the only Civil War memorial south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

In Comfort you will find many area churches for every denomination and an excellent public school system that serves the needs of the area youth. The town remains true to their ancestry and the small town, community appeal.
