Armstrong Mills was a small mill town and hamlet named for the Armstrong family who first arrived in the area in 1822. The Armstrong family was active in township and local affairs and by 1845, had established the Speedside Congregational Church.
The mill was constructed in 1856 by John and Mary Armstrong. It was an instant success and a small community named Unionville quickly sprang to life around the mill. A school was added in 1863. The community was renamed Armstrong Mills following the opening of a post office in 1876.
In the 1960s the mill was purchased by the late Canadian Artist, Ken Danby. Danby spent years restoring the mill to its former grandeur. In later years it was featured as a backdrop in a number of his paintings. Following his death in 2007, the estate which included the miller's stone house was put up for sale.
In addition to the restored mill, Armstrong Mills contains a few other early vestiges including the schoolhouse, now a private home and the little church built by the Armstrongs which has since been renamed Speedside United Church.
