Freeman Walker (October 25, 1780 – September 23, 1827) was a United States Senator from Georgia. Born in Charles City, Virginia, he attended the common schools and, in 1797, moved to Augusta, Georgia. He studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1803, commencing practice in Augusta. He was a member of the Georgia House of Representatives from 1807 to 1811, and was Mayor of Augusta in 1818 and 1819. He was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the U.S. Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of John Forsyth and served from November 6, 1819, to August 6, 1821, when he resigned. He was again mayor of Augusta in 1823, and died there in 1827. Interment was in the Walker Family Cemetery in Augusta.

Freeman Walker is also the fictional main character in David Allan Cates' third novel by the same name.
