Oakland Plantation, also known as the Wade Glover House, is a historic plantation home located near Beech Island, Aiken County, South Carolina. It was built in 1824-1826, and is a Carolina I-house with minimal mid-19th century and early-20th century additions and alterations. It has a central hall two-over-two floor plan with gable-end chimneys, one-story gallery on the facade, and shed room on the rear elevation. Also on the property are two contributing outbuildings: a frame one-story gable-end dairy house (c. 1850) and a frame one-story gable-end garage (c. 1920).[2][3]
