Comfort and Fredericksburg Attractions near Meyer Bed and Breakfast

Local Attractions:

Comfort Historic District

Founded by German “Freethinkers” in 1854, Comfort is unique. It boasts over one hundred pre-1900 buildings in its National Historic District. Many are located in the center of what is considered the most complete and authentic 19th century business district in Texas, all within an easy stroll of the Meyer Bed and Breakfast.

Centograph

This memorial on High Street celebrates the German “Freethinkers” who settled in the area in the mid-19th century, founding a number of Hill Country communities, including Comfort, and leaving a rich German Texas heritage still very much alive.

“Treue Der Union” Monument

Dedicated in 1866, this is the only monument to the Union cause south of the Mason Dixon line and one of only six sites in the nation which may fly the American flag at half mast in perpetuity. It marks the final resting place of men from Comfort and the surrounding area killed in the “Battle of the Nueces” in 1862. Opposed to slavery and secession, the German settlers of the area suffered greatly during the Civil War. Attempting to leave the state, the group was surprised and killed by Confederate raiders and their bodies recovered after the war ended.

Texas Hill Country Birding

Birding in the Texas Hill Country is wonderful all year long, and Comfort is located in a prime area where zones of eastern, western, and some northern and southern species overlap. The grounds of the Meyer and its 27-acre nature area itself is a superb location for bird and other wild life watching, and there are dozens of species that can be seen on our grounds and along the tree-lined course of Cypress Creek in every season.

Buckhorn Golf Course

Nearby on Comfort’s north side, is the Buckhorn Golf Course. This destination offers 18 holes of premier play and makes for a great activity for our guests who are looking for a memorable Texas Hill Country golf experience. Find out more on their website.
