1924Figs, the life's blood of Friendswood 1910 to circa 1956, were preserved and shipped from this Fig Preserving Plant. This business, opened in 1924 at this site by Quaker Cecil Brown, (son of the founder) was neither the first nor the last local preserving plant; however it had the most impact on the community. Even in the Great Depression, it provided a marked for the farmers' figs and some cash in the famlies' pockets.
