This house was built by Walter Rennack in the 1940’s for Clarence Comfort. His widow, Cora, lived here until 1976. It is a very well built house with many luxuries and a beautiful garden. Wesley Comfort Sr. established Comfort Lumber Co. in 1874 and his sons, Clarence and Wesley Jr., ran the business for many years on Brockway Street and the railroad tracks.
