The Robinson-Hiller House in Chapin, Lexington County, South Carolina, was built in 1902.[2][3] It is significant as a Queen Anne house and for being associated with Charles Plumber Robinson (1867-1944), a businessman who founded C.P. Robinson Lumber Company and other enterprises, and his wife Sarah "Eddie" Smithson Robinson, a "social activist and officer of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union." In 1919, after the Robinsons left Chapin, the house was acquired by James Haltiwanger Hiller.[4]

It was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1998.[1] It is currently a commercial spa.
