Clark Mills is a hamlet (and census-designated place) in Oneida County, New York, United States. The population was 1,905 at the 2010 census.

The community is located at the northeastern corner of the Town of Kirkland, west of the City of Utica.



The hamlet of Clark Mills, part of modern-day Town of Kirkland, is named for the Clark Mills Company, a textile mill on Oriskany Creek, and its founders: Ralph, Ammi, and Erastus Clark. The family business was established around 1845 and flourished for several years.[2] In 1891 the company name changed to the Hind & Harrison Plush Co. and remained in operation until its closure in 1949.[3]

St. Mark's Church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[4]
