Answer: Legend has it a sign along a trail that eventually became U.S. 24 once announced to travelers, "For Rest," and eventually, the space between the words accidentally got eliminated. (A more “official” version of how Forrest got its name comes from a claim that the town first was called “Forestville” and eventually got shortened to Forrest. Where the extra R came from remains a mystery.)
