The mill was first built in 1808 by John Brown, the son of a local clothier. The mill changed hands several times before coming under the ownership of Calvin Carver Damon. In 1854, Calvin's son, Edward Carver Damon, assumed control of the mill. Damon Mill produced a unique textile known as domett cloth, a light wool-cotton flannel invented by Calvin Damon.
On June 19, 1862, the wooden mill burnt to the ground. Edward Damon and architect Elbridge Boyden rebuilt the mill in the same year. The mill continued to produce textiles until the 1890s. It was mortgaged in 1893 and sold by 1898.
Today, the mill is used as office space by various businesses. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
