Charles St. John (October 8, 1818 - July 6, 1891) was a U.S. Representative from New York.

Born at Mount Hope, New York, St. John attended the common schools and Goshen and Newburgh (New York) Academies. He engaged in lumbering on the Delaware River and in mercantile pursuits and banking at Port Jervis, New York. He served as internal revenue collector and later as president of the Barrett Bridge Co..

St. John was elected as a Republican to the Forty-second and Forty-third Congresses (March 4, 1871-March 3, 1875). He resumed his former business activities. He died in Port Jervis, New York, July 6, 1891. He was interred in Laurel Grove Cemetery.

In 1888 St. John built the High Point Inn at New Jersey's highest point High Point (New Jersey). The Inn would form the basis for the home of Anthony R. Kuser who converted it into a lodge before ultimately donating it to New Jersey in 1923.[1]
