Old Forestville and the Saxon Colony
Author(s): Edward J. Wahla
This story of Forestville's beginnings and the subsequent arrival of the German colony of settlers in 1873 is drawn from many sources. Not the least of these were the reminiscences and observations of an old friend, Ferdinand Schaff, who is 93 years old at this writing. This account is an attempt to cover the village's most active period of growth, from 1871 to 1885. Fortunately, events of this period were well publicized in one really early county newspaper, The Lexington Jeffersonian.
