ABOUT THE AREA
This town originally named Scott's Prairie, whose first settler came around 1828, was renamed around 1895 to its present name of Green Forest. The post office, established around 1855, with its pot belly stove was a gathering place for many of the town folks. This is a town whose downtown has much the same stores as it has for a long time. In the center of it all sits a gazebo and around the square you can find antique stores, a café, a furniture store, florist, hardware store, library and interspersed among these gathering places. Helen Gurley Brown, editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine for 32 years, was a native of this city.
