Gamble Mill, also known as Lamb Mill, Thomas Mill, Wagner Mill, and Bellefonte Flouring Mill, is a historic grist mill located at Bellefonte, Centre County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1894, and is a 3 1/2-story brick building on a limestone foundation. There are two, one-story brick additions. It features a stepped gable, with a full gabled attic. The building replaced a mill built on this site in 1786, that was destroyed by fire in 1892. The mill ceased being used for grinding grain in 1947.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. It is located in the Bellefonte Historic District.[1]
