Amsterdam City Hall is a historic city hall complex located at Amsterdam, Montgomery County, New York. The complex includes the former Sanford Mansion, laundry building, and carriage house. The former Sanford Mansion is a 3-story, brick Classical Revival building built in 1869 and extensively remodeled in 1913–1917. The original house was expanded considerably with a three-by-ten-bay addition, completed in the early 20th century. It features a massive portico with six fluted columns topped by Corinthian order capitals. The mansion was deeded to the city for use as a city hall upon the death of John Sanford in 1932. The former laundry house is a simple ​1 12-story brick building with a slate-covered gable roof. The former carriage house was built about 1869. Some landscape features dating to the 1917 remodeling remain on the property.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]
