Circa 1836, Aaron Phelps, Milford's first postmaster and the man who platted north Milford, built a saw mill and a distillery here, at the foot of the lower mill pond.
The distillery became a carding mill in 1848, but the other mill, used for many years as a saw mill or as a planing mill by successive lumber companies, was located just east of here.
