Fidler's Mill is a historic grist mill located at Arlington, Upshur County, West Virginia. It was built in 1847-1849 and enlarged in 1916. It is a two to four story frame building built of yellow poplar on a stone foundation. The mill provided ground wheat and buckwheat for flour, and ground cornmeal, and also housed wool carding machines, which were used seasonally.[2]

Both mill and town were named for Alfious Arlington Fidler, proprietor.[3] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[1]
