The mill was built by Bernard Hughes in 1858, who intended it as "model" bakery. It was one of the largest state of the art mills in Northern Ireland. In 1882 the mill suffered a fire that caused £40,000 worth of damages (as of 1885). New buildings were erected in 1884, designed by Alex McAlister.

By 1900, after the death of Bernard Hughes, the milling machinery was sold off and the building used as a bakery.

The building later became derelict and was destroyed in a fire in 1966.
