Quakers Landing Friendswood Subdivision

 

 

 

 

A Texas Historical Marker on the Friends Church grounds designates Friendswood as the only permanent town in Texas that began as a Quaker settlement. It was founded in 1895 when F. J. Brown and T. H. Lewis led a group of Quaker families to the Gulf Coast looking for their "promised land."

The heart of the community was its large two-story wooden structure called The Academy. They built it from 1900 Galveston storm lumber, and it served as their church, school and community center for 50 years.

Very few vestiges of the Quaker settlement remain; however, the qualities instilled in the town's formation continue to be appreciated.
