Chalmers Knitting Mills is a historic factory building located at Amsterdam, Montgomery County, New York. It was built in 1913 and expanded in 1916. The original section is a four-story, brick building. The 1916 addition is a seven-story, steel frame and reinforced concrete building with concrete block. The addition is set at a near-right angle to the original section, giving the building an "L"-shaped footprint. The mill produced undergarments and remained in operation under the Chalmers name until the founders death in 1959.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.[1]
