Spring Mill is a small unincorporated community in Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

Located along the Schuylkill River, it lies between the community of Miquon and the Borough of Conshohocken. Conshohocken's southeast border cuts diagonally across the street grid from 12th Avenue, south of Righter Street, to approximately where Cherry Street meets the river.

"Spring Mill" was first a gristmill, built sometime between 1697 and 1704. The mill lent its name to Spring Mill Creek and the surrounding area. The mill burned in 1967, and its stone ruins were demolished.[1] The miller's house survives, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]

Spring Mill Station was established by the Reading Railroad about 1880. The modern station is part of the SEPTA Manayunk/Norristown Line. Located along the river at North Lane, it is subject to periodic flooding.[3]

The Schuylkill River Trail passes through the community. Spring Mill shares Conshohocken's 19428 zip code.
