Linchester Mill is a historic grist mill located at Preston in Caroline County, Maryland, United States. It was built about 1840 and is a ​2 12-story frame building sided in red-painted weatherboard and roofed with raised-seam metal. It is four bays long and two bays deep, with a two-story lean-to addition. The mill ceased operation in 1974, but houses an exceptionally complete collection of milling machinery dating from the 19th century to the mid-20th century.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[1]
