Friendswood was established in 1895 as a Quaker colony where Figs orchards, Satsuma orange orchards and rice fields were abundant. Quaker and Friends have the same meaning and thus Friendswood, Texas was born.

Little remain of the original land use as Friendswood, Texas has grown into a thriving community with civic activities like Concert in the Park, Farmers Market on the first Saturday of the month, antique car show and the 4th of July celebration with a live bank and Fireworks. 

I am a 25 year resident of Friendswood and hove two grown children that have benefited from the highly rated Friendswood ISD.
