Rieser Mill is a historic grist mill and miller's house located in Bern Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. The mill was built in 1825, and is a 2 1/2-story, rectangular stone banked building with a gable roof. The building replaced an earlier mill on the same site. The miller's house is a "T"-shaped, stone and brick dwelling. It was built in 1784, and enlarged in the late 1800s.[2] The mill is located approximately 1/4-mile from the Rieser-Shoemaker Farm.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
