The Wye Mill is a historic grist mill located at Wye Mills, Queen Anne's County, Maryland, United States. It is one of the earliest industrial sites on the Eastern Shore in continuous use; dating to the mid 18th century. It is a small frame waterpowered, grist mill, with an early-20th century 20-foot-diameter (6.1 m) iron overshot wheel. The mill retains nearly all of its late-19th and early-20th century equipment.[2]

The Wye Mill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
