Comstock Park History
Comstock Park is part of the Double Diamond neighborhood which had formerly been the Double Diamond Ranch. This ranch was owned by Wilbur D. May and had previously been part of Louis Damonte ranch. The Double Diamond Ranch held 1,500 head of cattle on 2,200 acres, and was known for having the best quarter horses in Nevada.
The ranch was managed by H.M. “Rich” Richardson. The name Double Diamond is said to have come from Wilbur May’s initials “W.M.” which look like two diamonds when written with the “M” over the “W.”
