Salubria is a historic plantation home located at Stevensburg, Culpeper County, Virginia. It was built about 1742, and is a two-story, hipped roof dwelling with two large corbel-capped chimneys on the interior ends. Salubria was the birthplace of Admiral Cary Travers Grayson, personal physician to President Woodrow Wilson.[3] In October 2000, Salubria was donated by the Grayson family to the Germanna Foundation for historic preservation.[4]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.[1]
