Friendswood history:

A history page for Friendswood.

Two men of the Quaker faith, Frank Jacob Brown and Thomas Hadley Lewis, came to the area in the spring of 1895. They were impressed with the area and quickly arranged to purchase a trust deed for the property. The deed was recorded on 15 July 1895 and the colony named Friendswood. The town remained a small Quaker community for many decades. When the population of Houston began to fan out to other areas, many young families chose Friendswood in which to live and raise their fmailies. In 1960, incorporation took place and the first mayor and city council were elected. Since that time growth has continued with many homes, businesses, churches, schools and organizations.
