Potter Hall is a historic home located at Williston, Caroline County, Maryland, United States. It is an early-19th-century, Federal-influenced house facing the Choptank River. The house was constructed in three sections: a tall 2 12-story Flemish bond brick structure built about 1808 adjoining a lower 2 12-story, two-bay-wide central section built about 1750, also of Flemish bond brick, then a frame single-story kitchen wing added in 1930. Each of the three sections has a gable roof. Potter Hall was originally settled by Zabdiel Potter, who in the mid-18th century built a wharf and the small brick house. He developed Potter’s Landing into a key early port for the shipping of tobacco to Baltimore.[2]

Potter Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
