Field Trips

Built by Solomon G. Comstock in 1883, the Victorian home showcases the popular styles of the time, blending Queen Anne and Eastlake designs. Comstock was a U.S. Representative, banker, and helped build James J. Hill's railroad. Ada, the eldest of three children, went on to become the first dean of women at the University of Minnesota in 1901 and later served as Radcliffe College's first full-time president.

This site is managed by the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County.

Hjemkomst Center tours are the perfect complement to a Comstock House visit. Book both sites to receive a discount.
