Living in Comstock, MI
Settlers began arriving to the Comstock Park area in the 1820s. By the turn of the century, the furniture manufacturing capital of America was in what is now Grand Rapids. With the invention of the railroad, Comstock Park served as a crossing for two train lines and saw many visitors.
Today, many Comstock Park residents find jobs as metal and plastic workers or in other production occupations. Comstock Park Public Schools has approximately 2,500 students, and the small number allows the district to focus on each student's academic and athletic ability. The school district's achievement level is above the state average.
