The Harriet May Mills House or Harriet May Mills Residence is a historic home on the west side of Syracuse, New York. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1] Extensive information on the restoration of the home and its former owners is archived on the now-defunct HarrietMayMills.org website.

Charles de Berard Mills and Harriet Ann Mills were abolitionists.[2] Harriet May Mills, their daughter, was active in women's rights. She co-founded a suffragette club, the Political Equality Club, in 1892, which grew rapidly.[2] She was the first female to run for a major statewide office as a candidate of a major political party, running for New York State's Secretary of State in 1920.[2]
