Foristell was officially platted in 1857 with the name "Millville". The small village was located on either side of the railroad tracks that had come through the area the previous year. The railroad was very important in the growth of the Foristell. Cattle ranches, tobacco plantations, farms were established around the village. By 1871, a post office was located in the town and in 1875 the name was changed to "Foristell" in honor of a prominent citizen, Pierre Foristell. Mr Foristell was an Irish emigrant who came to the area in the late 1850's and became a large land owner, as well as a tobacco farmer and cattle rancher.
