Historic Forestville's Photographic Past

The process of photography had been around almost 30 years when Forestville began to decline in the late 1860s. Unfortunately, the earliest known photographic images of the town date from 1897, long after its decline. 

The photos shown here are kept at Historic Forestville. For historical photographs, paintings and drawings from all over Minnesota, explore the Minnesota Historical Society collections.
