Comfort TX

Just south of Fredericksburg is the small down of Comfort, TX. Comfort is actually part of the San Antonio area, as it is only a hop, skip and jump up route 10. The little town has many historic buildings, a population of only less than 2400, and many antique shops. We stopped there to go antiquing and have a bite of lunch at High's Cafe . Click on the link to see the menu. If you review the link at the top of the post, you will see some of the history and pictures of special sites there. But here are a few:

The old bank building, now a museum.

A place on the south side of town in need of repair, obviously.

A nice looking home on a corner with a very unusual fence.

We loved this very small Baptist Church.
That's it for my tour of Comfort, although there was much more to see and enjoy. Be sure to check out the link for the history of the FreeGermans. By the way the chocolate sorbet at the Cafe was like eating fudge! Yum!

Have a great week!

It is a nice small town. The museum looks worth visiting, and the fence is quite nice. They managed to make it both functional and attractive.

Been there....we made a special trip to the WWII memorial in Comfort...at least I think it was in Comfort.

Yes, great historical value to the town...and a pleasant trip from C C to there.

Well the museum should have a 'safe' place keep their valuables.

That's a great fence!

Hello Linda Kay, The Super Bowl game was exciting and disappointing in some ways. We live in NC so we rooted for the Panthers. However, we admire Peyton Manning a lot and we are happy for his amazing career in football.

Your Comfort trip sounds wonderful and I loved your photos. How fun that you both enjoy taking road trips together. We do too. Some chocolate sorbet sounds awesome.

Have a wonderful week.
xo,
Jeanne

Chocolate sorbet??!! Now THAT is one good thing indeed. Would love to try that.
A very picturesque town. Reminds me so much of my own.

Smaller towns have so much to offer.

I love exploring those little towns. I always try to stroll through the old cemeteries. It sounds weird, but you get a sense for the history of the people that lived there.

I wonder what the point of that fence was? Is it just decorative... or is there some reason behind the shape.

I enjoy looking at these lovely towns around America. Thanks for the tour Linda Kay.
