Charles C. Hovey House and Strong Leather Company Mill is a historic home and mill located at Bainbridge in Chenango County, New York. The house is a 2 12-story Queen Anne style residence constructed in 1889. It and the adjacent carriage house were included as part of the Bainbridge Historic District. The mill building is a long 1 12-story, 5,000-square-foot (460 m2) structure built between 1897 and 1903 to house the Strong Leather Company, a manufacturer of patent leather. The roof is defined by its unusual parabolic arch, formed by a series of 60 rounded bows joined to the rafters.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
