The Elliottville Lower Mill, also known as the Peep Toad Mill, is an historic cotton mill in the East Killingly section of Killingly, Connecticut. The mill complex consists of a single building, along with a mill dam, pond, raceway, and a rubble stone-arch bridge which carries Peep Toad Road across Whetstone Brook. The mill is of modest scale, 2-1/2 stories in height with a gable roof, and is built of stone and wood framing. It is set across the road from the mill pond and dam. The mill was built c. 1850 by the Elliotville Manufacturing Company, whose larger main mill was upstream from this complex. In the 20th century the mill building was adapted for use as a private residence and art studio.[2]

The mill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
