Borneman Mill, also known as Stauffer Mill, is a historic "farm mill" located in Washington Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. The mill was built to perform farm chores with water power. The mill was built before 1860, and is a two-story, with basement, post-and-beam building with vertical siding. It measures 21 feet, 6 inches, by 24 feet, 6 inches. The mill powered operations in the nearby stone bank barn (after 1850) by use of a cable drive system. Also on the property are a contributing farmhouse (1810, 1850) and smokehouse (c. 1850).

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
