During the spring of 1895, two Quakers or “friends” named Tomas Lewis and Frank Brown both came to this region to develop a community dedicated to God. They approached J.C League, the owner of the land, and negotiated for the area. They received the deed on July 15, 1895 and went to the Courthouse of Galveston to change the name of the land to what we now know as Friendswood.
