Friendship, also known as Friendship School, is on State Highway 155 four miles northeast of Gilmer in north central Upshur County. It was probably established around 1900. In the mid-1930s the community, known as Friendship School, had a school, a church, and a number of houses. After World War II its school was consolidated with those of Gilmer, and by the mid-1960s all that remained of Friendship was a church and a few scattered houses. In 1990 Friendship was a dispersed rural community. The population was twenty-five in 2000.
