Costumed guides portray residents and their daily activities.3”
“Forestville is a ghost town in section 13 of Forestville Township in Fillmore County, Minnesota, United States. In 1949 the Minnesota State Legislature authorized the creation of Forestville State Park, with the intent to preserve what remained of the abandoned townsite. Mystery Cave was added to the state park in 1987. Today Historic Forestville is operated as a historic site of the Minnesota Historical Society.4”
