The New Friendship School existed as early as 1890 and reached an enrollment of 112 in 1904. In the mid-1930s the community had a school, a church, and several dwellings. Its school was consolidated with the Grand Saline Independent School District in 1952. In 1965 Friendship had a church, a cemetery, and dwellings along the roadway.
