December 2014 - Friendship AK

Friendship lies along U.S. Highway 67, which runs through the center of the town, and is a quarter of a mile south of Interstate 30 in Hot Spring County. During the Civil War, it was the site of an important salt-making operation.The Friendship community was established in the early 1850s when settlers from nearby Hot Springs (Garland County), Tennessee, and Virginia moved to the area. G. M. Russell of Tennessee, W. P. Riland of Virginia, and Thomas H. Hammons of Hot Springs were the first three settlers of the area. As the area grew in population, residents decided to assign a name to their community. Russell is credited with suggesting the name of Friendship, a reflection of the close relationships forged among settlers of the community.

Week's Favourite and Flower

  1. ...there also is a Friendship, NY! Roses and cactus aren't a combination that often comes to mind. I hope that you are enjoying your warm vacation. Thanks for sharing and I hope to see you back again.

  2. The cacti and roses are a cheerful sight.

  3. How lovely, to name a place "Friendship" - there is a place in Iowa called "What Cheer" that always made me smile when I would see the signpost for it. I'm fascinated by the form of the plant on the far right of the cactus picture - some kind of succulent, I think, but perhaps a cactus also. Really interesting shape!
