Stark’s Mill: Ontario’s Old Mills

Built in town of Paisley in 1885 by James Stark, it replaced an earlier mill that burned. It operated as a gristmill and feed mill until 1972.

  3. Could anyone tell me the exact date of the fire in 1884 when the Mill burned down? Am doing some historical work for our family and that time frame is rather important. I am the great great grandson of James Stark (1827-1904). thankyou.

  5. Thanks anyways, Harold. Perhaps someone will know. I emailed the Fire Dept in Paisley; perhaps just perhaps they will have some old record showing the date, though it was long before computers(lol) or even typewriters most likely. Amazing how many hand written notes are still floating around.

  7. I believe that Paul and Helen Crysler still own the Mill. Here is a link to what it is used for today. It was in MY family for over 100 years.
