Fairmount is a hamlet (and census-designated place) in Onondaga County, New York, United States. It was given its name in 1798 by engineer and politician James Geddes whose estate was located in the area. A tavern house built in 1808 (now housing a funeral home) is the oldest structure in the hamlet. The Fairmount area was originally part of the New York State Salt Reservation, but was annexed to the Town of Camillus in 1834. Prior to that date, census enumerations for Fairmount were included in the Town of Onondaga census. Fairmount had its own post office until about 1890. It has had its own fire department since 1942.

Farmland in the hamlet was developed into residential tracts from the mid-1950s through the early 1990s. A large area of undeveloped land, formerly used for quarrying and a munitions factory in the 19th and early 20th centuries, borders Fairmount to the south at Split Rock, and is not considered to be seriously polluted.
