Friendship, off Farm Road 747 nineteen miles northwest of Rusk in northwestern Cherokee County, was probably settled around the time of the Civil War. A school was in operation there by 1896, when it had an enrollment of twenty-five. In the mid-1930s the small community had a church, a school, and a number of houses. The school was later closed, and in the early 1990s only a church and cemetery remained in the area.
