Durhamville is a hamlet located in Oneida County, New York, United States. The population was 584 as of the 2010 census.

Durhamville is a small hamlet that was founded before 1813 and named for Eber Durham.

From the mid-1800s until the early 1900s, Durhamville was home to Erie Canal barge construction and repair. The Oneida Creek Aqueduct was built over Oneida Creek as part of the Enlarged Erie Canal. The aqueduct is located just west of the village of Durhamville, on the border of Oneida and Madison Counties (Oneida Creek is the border), and was completed around 1856. Very little of the original aqueduct remains. The original wooden trunk and piers of the aqueduct have been replaced by concrete.

Durhamville was also the location of the Fox & Company glass house which, at the time, was one of the largest glass companies in the nation.
