Welcome to the Village of Forestville Michigan!

The Village of Forestville was named for the heavily timbered area. Forestville was first settled by Alva Kelley who bought land here in 1853. Captain E.B. Ward built the first sawmill in 1854. It was incorporated as a village in 1895.

Forestville is located along the shores of Lake Huron in the northeast corner of Sanilac County. It is a quiet village and a perfect setting for a relaxing get away or a summer cottage.

We invite you to learn more about our village within these pages and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.

Please note that utility work that is done on the Village of Forestville’s water and sewer system is performed by our DPW who will arrive in a red truck with the Village of Forestville logo on the doors or a white truck with the City of Harbor Beach logo on it. Typically an appointment is made in advance for any work that requires our DPW to enter a property. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at 989-864-3447 or forestville@airadv.net
