Forrest House


Cedar Falls
415 Walnut Street

Have you ever wondered who first decided that oatmeal would make a good breakfast food? It was the man who built this house. His name was John Forrest, and he came to Cedar Falls from Canada to popularize oatmeal in the United States. He built this home in 1874.

Mr. Forrest operated a mill for the making of oatmeal and also made barley flour and feed.
