Ariss is an unincorporated rural community in Guelph/Eramosa Township, Wellington County, Ontario, Canada. By 1900, a hotel, blacksmith shop and a few houses were located at the settlement.
In 1903, Joseph and Ellen House opened a store there in a small room of their house.
The settlement had no official name prior to the railway being built, and was often called Weissenburg, which was the same name as a settlement located 2 km (1.2 mi) west. Railway officials therefore chose the name Weissenburg for their new station at the settlement. Postal officials objected because the Weissenburg settlement to the west had a post office, and they did not want a post office - and a railway station with the same name - located so far apart. Postal officials instead decided to open a new post office at the settlement near the new train station. Names for the new post office were suggested by residents and included "Martindale", after David Martin, who had owned the land where the railway station was established, and "Ariss", after Mrs. Ariss, the settlement's oldest resident.
The Ariss railway station was used to ship locally grown hogs, cattle and turnips, while feed and coal were shipped to the Ariss station from Goderich.
