Forestville's unofficial motto is "Forestville, The Good Life"


Beautifully situated in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley amidst rolling hills, soaring redwood trees and lush vineyards, the tiny town of Forestville offers much to do.

It's a laid-back, slow-it-down, family oriented kind of place where coffee shops roast their own beans, dining options vary from down-home to gourmet, and people are friendly.

The town was established in the late 1860s, and although the spelling was changed later, it was originally named after saloon owner Andrew Jackson Forrester. Forestville was the home of the first powered sawmill in California, as well as a chair factory that, at the time, was the largest manufacturing plant in Sonoma County.
