History:  

FORESTON, a city in section 33 of Milo Township about three miles west of Milaca, is partly surrounded by a hardwood forest. It was incorporated as a village on May 9, 1889. The lumber industry created the community on the west branch of the Rum River, naming it Bridgman, and established a post office, 1882-89, with Coleman Bridgeman as postmaster; the name was changed to Foreston in 1889.
