History

Felts Mills was sited on one of several natural falls on the Black River and first settled with the construction of a grist mill in about 1800. An improved dam was erected in 1821, and a stone mill in the following year. In 1824, John Felt constructed the large sawmills that gave the town its name. In 1889, the Taggart Paper Company built a large paper mill on an island across the river, ruins of which are still visible today.
