This page is about the New York State Senator, for the New York City merchant see Ephraim Hart

Ephraim Hart (December 27, 1774 Farmington, Hartford County, Connecticut - February 14, 1839 St. Augustine, St. Johns County, Florida) was an American politician from New York.


In 1817, he removed to Utica, New York.

He was a Democratic-Republican/Clintonian member of the New York State Senate from 1817 to 1822.

In 1818, he was appointed by Governor DeWitt Clinton to the Erie Canal Commission to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Joseph Ellicott. When the New York State Legislature met in 1819, Clinton's recess appointment was not upheld, and the Bucktails majority of the Legislature elected Henry Seymour instead.
