Summary: The hamlet of Fisher Mills was located on Chilligo Creek about two km northwest of Hespeler, where Jacob Fisher built a dam and established a grist mill in 1843. By 1871, the mill was the largest in Waterloo Township and employed four men producing flour valued at $72,000 annually.

The Fisher Mills dam was demolished in 2000. Although the basics of the mill remain, it is closed to the public and has been converted into a private residence.
