Fig orchards, satsuma orange orchards, and rice fields once flourished where Friendswood homes now stand. The last vestiges of them and the homes that the Quakers constructed are nearly gone, but the legacy left by those founders and early settlers remains.

Friendswood encompasses parts of two counties–Northern Galveston and southern Harris County, divided by the popular Clear Creek.

Webster, a small city in terms of its square miles – just 6.7, but mighty in terms of commercial vibrancy – home to more than 2,200 businesses and a trade area that includes a 15-mile radius and 1.5M people – was founded in 1879 by James W. Webster under the name “Gardentown.” As Webster is positioned midway between downtown Houston and Galveston, the City was established initially as a colony for English immigrants. With the advent of the railroad, the area’s farming industry grew.
Two of Webster’s growth industries have always been aerospace and medical. Webster became the “medical center of the south” with Houston as the “medical center of the north” beginning in 1972 with Clear Lake Regional Medical Center. Webster’s medical center accommodates a service area population exceeding more than 1,800,000 patients annually. With the opening of Bay Area Regional Medical Center in 2014, that number is anticipated to continually escalate.
