The Belknap-Sulloway Mill, now the Belknap Mill Museum, is a historic mill at 25 Beacon Street East in Laconia, New Hampshire. The 3-1/2 story brick building was built sometime between 1823 and 1828, and is a rare well-preserved example of an early rural textile mill in New England. Unlike later mills, which used more fire-resistant materials, its interior uses joisted floor construction.[2]

The mill was in active use for the production of textiles until 1969, undergoing some modest alterations as well as the modernization of its power plant. It was opened as a museum in 1991.[3]

The mill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.[1]
