Comfort History

Settled in 1854 by German immigrants, the town of Comfort has a rich history. The settlers were largely considered to be Freethinkers. Freethought as a philosophical viewpoint holds that opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or other dogmas. The Freethinkers were indeed progressive, espousing ideals such as racial, social, and sexual equality, and the abolition of slavery.
