La Foret Fouesnant has a long and varied history. The town was first mentioned in the 11th century, and is believed to have been founded by the Count of Cornouaille. The town grew in importance during the Middle Ages, and was a popular trading post for the region.

In the 19th century, the town underwent a period of industrialisation, with the arrival of a paper mill, a tannery, and a oyster farming industry.
