Victory Mills is a historic textile mill building located at Victory in Saratoga County, New York. It was built in 1918 by the American Manufacturing Company and is a rectangular, five story brick and reinforced concrete building measuring 282 feet (86 m) by 157 feet (48 m). It has about 220,000 square feet (20,000 m2) of space. It features six tower structures, five for stairs and one holding a water tower. It operated as a cotton mill until 1929, when operations moved to Alabama. In 1937, it was purchased by the United Board and Carton Corporation, later A.L. Garber / Wheelabrator-Frye, then Clevepak Corporation / Victory Specialty Packaging Company who manufactured folding cartons.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[1]
