Milltown used to be a separate settlement southwest of Saint Stephen, but the two joined together in the 1970s under the name Saint Stephen.

Milltown was the site of a large textile factory from 1882 until 1957. The textile factory benefitted from a local hydro-electric generating station, the Milltown Dam. Electricity continues to be generated by the Milltown Dam and is exported to the United States where it is consumed in Calais in Maine. (Source: Wikipedia)
