Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 2,849. In Warwick T., Lambton C., on Hwy 21 and C. Rd. 12,37 km NE of Sarnia.
  • The community started with the completion of the Grand Trunk Railway line from Stratford to Sarnia in 1859.
  • There had been scattered settlement in the area as far back as the 1840s, but the place became a pumping station for the railroad and was called Forest because of the heavy forest covering the area.
  • A post office opened in 1862 as Forest, and the name remained even after the trees had been felled and the community became an agricultural centre.
  • In 1888, when villagers sought town status, the community was just shy of the required population of2,000.
  • To get around this technicality, it was arranged to have one of the Grand Trunk Railway passenger cars wait at the station for one hour -- just long enough to register the passengers and crew as residents of Forest.
