Comfort Bat Roost: In 1918, Albert Steves erected a "Hygieostatic" bat roost on his family farm in Comfort. This roost was built to attract bats in an effort to control mosquito populations by natural means. The current population is a mix of about 1,000 Cave myotis (Myotis velifer) and Mexican free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis), though at one time there may have been as many as 10,000. It was originally researched and developed by Dr. Charles Agustus Rosenheimer Campbell of San Antonio. The idea was to use bats against malaria carrying mosquitos. At one time, there were sixteen bat roosts built in the United States and Europe, of which only two sites now remain - one in Comfort and one in the Florida Keys." History & Details.

HISTORY: Handbook of Texas Online:
"The town was laid out near the site of an Indian village in 1854 by Ernst Hermann Altgelt, though its history goes back to a group of Germans from New Braunfels that settled in 1852 along the banks of the Cypress Creek above its confluence with the Guadalupe River. Freemasons, freethinkers, and political activists, middle-class German families, and liberals from Bettina and Sisterdale settled the area. Townsmen organized the community along cooperative lines and steadfastly opposed formal local government. Comfort opened a school shortly after its founding, but not until 1892 was a church built. The town was a center of Union sentiment during the Civil War and lost many young men at the battle of the Nueces in 1862. The Treue der Union monument on a hillside across from Immanuel Lutheran Church honors these dead. From 1856 until Kendall County was organized in 1862, Comfort competed with Kerrville to become the county seat of Kerr County; Kerrville won.
Early agriculture and commerce in the area depended on sheep and goats, grains, lime burning, masonry, building rock, lumber, and shingles. In the 1940s and 1950s, when the Hill Country was an international wool and mohair center, Adolf Stieler of Comfort reigned as "Angora Goat King of the World." In the 1980s agribusiness continued to dominate the local economy, but hunting, fishing, sightseeing, and youth camps drew increasing numbers of tourists.
Much of the original townsite is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Significant architectural sites include Bolshevik Hall, Turner Hall, a theater, and numerous half-timber and Victorian structures that survived a disastrous flood in 1978. A tradition of secular funerals was still widely observed in the twentieth century, and German turner (see TURNVEREIN MOVEMENT) activities and modern Volksmarsch celebrations continued. A local museum, volunteer and mutual aid organizations, and service and literary clubs provided informal governance. The population of the unincorporated town was over 1,400 in 1980, when the post office, established in 1856, still existed. In 1990 the population was 1,477, and in 2000 it increased to 2,358."
Wikipedia: "Comfort was established in 1854 by German immigrants, who were Freethinkers and abolitionists. Hermann Ernst Altgelt, at the young age of 22, is credited with surveying and measuring the lots that would later be sold to the incoming German immigrants. He stayed and married Emma (Murck) Altgelt, and they raised their nine children in the township of Comfort. The first churches were not established in Comfort until 1900.
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. Mr. Giles lived in San Antonio, and he would ride horses, the stagecoach, and later the train to check his building sites in Comfort. Most of the population today is composed of descendants of those original pioneer families of the 1850s and the 1860s.
Comfort is also known for a tragic event that took place during the Civil War. The Treue Der Union Monument 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.
In 1918, Albert Steves erected a bat roost on his family farm in Comfort. This roost was built to attract bats in an effort to control mosquito populations by natural means. It was originally researched and developed by Dr. Charles Agustus Rosenheimer Campbell of San Antonio. The idea was to use bats against malaria carrying mosquitos. At one time, there were sixteen bat roosts built in the United States and Europe, of which only two sites now remain - one in Comfort and one in the Florida Keys.
Early in the 20th century, J. Marvin Hunter, the Texas journalist, historian, and author of the American West, published the Comfort Times, which he soon disbanded. Hunter later formed Frontier Times magazine and Frontier Times Museum in Bandera."
HERMANN SONS ALTENHEIM: The Order of the Sons of Hermann was founded in Texas, July 6, 1861. Since 1916, the order has maintained this retirement home in Comfort.
SEIDENSTICKER HOME: Currently owned by Charles and Brenda Seidensticker. Built by Charlie's grandfather, Henry Seidensticker. Construction took two years, to complete (1912-1914), due to rain in 1913. Rock for the home was quarried from field in front of house.
SA & AP RAILROAD BRIDGE: Built in 1887 out of wood, part washed away in flood of 1900. Metal trestles were added between 1900 and 1930s. Rail service ran until early 1970s when H.C. and Charlie Seidensticker purchased it to keep it from being torn down for scrap.

- Brownsboro Cemetery: Located on River Bend Rd off the highway from Comfort to Sisterdale in Kendall County, on N bank of Guadalupe River. Owned and managed by Comfort Heritage Foundation. An officially designated Texas Historical Cemetery. This cemetery and a few houses are all that remain of Brownsboro, one of Kendall County's earliest settlements dating back to 1848. Though it had been a thriving community, a flood in the 1870's, the railroad passing it by in 1887, and another flood in 1900 led to Brownsboro's demise. The school and post office were moved to higher ground near the intersection of RR-473 and Old #9 in 1897, and remained there until 1944. Land was donated for a cemetery in 1870. The Comfort Heritage Foundation later acquired the cemetery, applied for and obtained a historical marker. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txchf/cbrown.htm

NUECES TREUE DER UNION MONUMENT: Located on a hillside across from the high school campus, between 3rd and 4th Streets. See more background in History section above. www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txchf/treue.htm. Honors the memory of the sixty-eight men from this region who were loyal to the Union during the Civil War. They tried to escape into Mexico so that they could join the Union Army. They were ambushed and killed near the Nueces River in the Battle of the Nueces. Their bones were recovered, except for those who drowned in the Rio Grande River, and buried at this site in 1865. [To Editor's knowledge, this is the only site in the nation where the US flag is flown at half-staff all the time]. The Comfort Heritage Foundation maintains this site, and was instrumental in the restoration and rededication of the monument in 1996. See history details in following references: a) Ruth and Frank Kiel. Treue der Union: Frequently Asked Questions. Comfort: Skyline Ranch Press, 2009; b) Frank W. Kiel.
