Huston Mill, located in Willow Mill Park, has been a local landmark since the late 1790s. The mill structure is named for James S. Huston, who owned and operated the gristmill from the 1880s through the early 20th century. Today, evidence of the mill race and interior machinery is gone, but the mill building survives as a reminder of past times (access is not available). A group called the "Friends of Willow Mill" has been working diligently to help protect, preserve and develop the Historic Huston Mill, that sits on park property.
