Comfort, Texas was established by German settlers 1854. Wearied by their journey from New Braunfels, Texas, the small group was so pleased by this picturesque site and pure water that they named it Camp Comfort. With its abundance of vintage structures, much of the midtown area is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, Comfort, Texas is a popular tourist area with numerous camps along the Guadalupe River operated by various civic organizations. Visitors enjoy fishing, swimming and camping during summer months. Hunting is popular during the fall and winter. Visitors find Comfort Shopping interesting year round.

Comfort, Texas is a beautiful 17 mile drive to Kerrville, Texas, a popular toursit area. Bandera, Texas, the Cowboy Capital of the World, is a short scenic drive from Comfort. Boerne, Texas, a great place to visit, is also nearby. Comfort, Texas is a short drive to Fredericksburg, Texas, known for its many festivals and unique shops.
