Lawton's Mill (also known as the Albro Mill) is a historic mill located on Ten Rod Road in Exeter, Rhode Island. The mill property includes an 18th-century house, an early 19th-century wood-frame mill building, and a 19th-century barn with early 20th-century additions. Also surviving from the period of the mill's activity are dams and waterways associated with it, including a dam and raceway extending several hundred feet north of the mill building. The mill building, which was built c. 1820, is one of a very small number of mill buildings to survive from the period in Rhode Island.[2]

The mill was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 27, 1980.[1]
