The Clark Mills Studio is a historic site in the city of Charleston, South Carolina. It was built in 1850 and became the residence and studio of Clark Mills, a popular sculptor and artist from the area.

Clark Mills is best known for his work on General Andrew Jackson?s equestrian statue that still stands as a centerpiece in the Lafayette Square in Washington, D. C. Aside from the fact that Mills was a self-taught sculptor, what made the whole creation process of the said art work so special is the tiny detail that Mills built his own foundry and furnace that he used to melt the bronze cannons that Jackson captured in 1814. He used this to build the first equestrian statue to be casted in the United States.
