Introduction

Historic Forestville was once the center of a thriving rural community until it fell into decline after the railroad passed it by in 1868. The historic town includes a fully-stocked general store, farm and homestead with original artifacts. Historic Forestville is located inside Forestville State Park, between Preston and Spring Valley on County Road 118, three miles south of Highway 16.
