The Fort Schuyler Club, founded in 1883, is a traditional gentlemen's club located in downtown Utica, New York, USA. Early members of the club included Elihu Root, Francis Kernan, Horatio Seymour, Charlemagne Tower, and Ward Hunt.[2]

The club's clubhouse is "significant as a rare and substantially intact example of a late 19th-early 20th century social club" in downtown utica.[2] The building, built in stages from 1830 on, is a landmark located prominently on Genesee Street, the "principal thoroughfare" of Utica.[2] First used as a residence, the club purchased the building in 1883, shortly after its establishment.[2] It was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1]
