Spring Mill Complex, also known as the Michael Gunkle Spring Mill, is a historic grist mill complex located in East Whiteland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The mill was built in 1793, and is a 2 1/2-story, banked stone structure with a gable roof. Also on the property are the contributing 2 1/2-story, stuccoed stone miller's house; a 1-story, stone spring house; a 1-story, stone smoke house; and a 1-story, stone carriage house. The mill remained in continuous operation into the 1940s.[2]
