Clinger-Moses Mill Complex, also known as Clement's Mill, is a historic mill complex located in West Pikeland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The property includes the site of two mills, a stone dam, a mill house, stone bank barn, and outbuildings. A former three-story grist mill built in 1860 has been converted to residential use. There is a four-story, three bay by three bay, fieldstone mill building. A five-bay, frame house has been built on the foundations of a former saw mill. The main house was built in 1801, and is a 2 1/2-story, fieldstone dwelling with a gable roof and two-story rear wing.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
