Illick's Mill, also known as Peter's Mill and Monocacy Milling Co., is a historic grist mill located in Monocacy Park at Bethlehem, Northampton County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1856, and is a four level, vernacular stone mill building with a heavy timber frame interior. The original building measured approximately 34 by 40 feet (10 by 12 m). The building was expanded in the 1880s with a 20-foot addition and the addition of the fourth level and a monitor roof.[2] The mill was formerly the home of the Fox Environmental Center.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1] As of October 2015, the Appalachian Mountain Club's Mid-Atlantic Conservation Office has occupied a portion of the building, under a lease agreement with the City of Bethlehem. The building is maintained and its uses managed by the City of Bethlehem's Parks, Recreation & Public Properties Department.
