History on a Pinhead

The town dates from the 1840s when it was first settled alongside the Old San Antonio Road. It later became a stop on the Katy Railroad around 1900 and very little has happened since. The first available population figures showed 40 people here in the 1980s.

Comal, Texas has no connection to the community of Comal Town.

Subject: The Meaning of "comal"

I would like to note that "comal" does not mean basin in Spanish. For starters, it is an indigenous word in origin accepted into the Spanish language because of its popular use. "Comal" is a slightly curved pan made of clay or metal on which tortillas are cooked and coffee/cocoa beans are toasted. The Spanish word for basin is "Cuenca". - Maritza Price, March 03, 2008
