Friendswood TX History

Friendswood was once a land of Fig orchards, Satsuma orange orchards, and rice fields until Quakers Frank Jacob Brown and Thomas Hadley Lewis caught sight of the 1,538 acres of prairie area.

Believing it was the "Promised Land" for their colony, they purchased the deed of trust from the owner, Galveston banker J.C. League. On July 15, 1895, the colony's name, Friendswood, was recorded at a courthouse in Galveston.

The colony's name spread among the Quakers, and soon, many families joined them. By 1920, the population rose, thanks to Houston developers luring farmers into the land.

The war reduced the growth in the 1940s, but properties along the creeks started the trend. Steady growth continued through the 1970s and 1980s.

Today, Friendswood is home to a diverse mix of architectural-styled properties, many of which are vintage ranch-style homes.

The city also features fine businesses such as restaurants, bars, and retail centers. Friendswood is also home to parks, highly-rated schools, outdoor activity centers, and 266 acres of green space and nature trails.
