City of Friendsville... A Place to Call Home!

Friendsville, welcomes you to our small city, with community values, and old hometown feel.

Friendsville was settled in the 1790s by the Religious Society of Friends, better known as the Quakers, who opposed both war and slavery. The town became a key player in the Underground Railroad which aided runaway slaves and others who wished to escape to the North. William Hackney was a Friendsville Quaker who helped more than 2,000 people leave the South using a cave called Cudjo’s Cave that is located in Friendsville. It is even the subject of a book written by John Trowbridge in 1863, called “Cudjo’s Cave.” The cave is now closed to the public. We are also on the Civil War Trail.
