Text on MarkerAs early as the 1870s, Methodist worship services for pioneers of the Friendship community were conducted by circuit riders in a one-room schoolhouse (.25 mi. W). Land for the present church site and cemetery was deeded in 1884 by E. W. Graham, and a sanctuary was built here soon after. The site of many early revivals, the Friendship Methodist Church has served as a focal point of the surrounding rural community. Traditional services for the congregation, including a Memorial Day observance in June and a Thanksgiving celebration, now serve as homecoming events.
