Ivy Mills Historic District is a national historic district located at Concord Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The district includes two contributing buildings and one contributing structure. They are the ruins of a paper mill, erected in 1829 and abandoned after 1866; the clerk's house, dated to about 1830; and the Ivy Mills Mansion House, built in 1837. The mansion house is a 2 1/2-story, five bay wide, stuccoed masonry building. It has a saltbox wing and a wide verandah. The original paper mill was erected in 1729, and the original mansion house in 1744. Both of the original buildings were replaced in the early-19th century by the present buildings.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.[1]
