The Salters Plantation House is a house in Williamsburg County, South Carolina.[2] It is an important example of nineteenth century domestic architecture combining national, regional, and local architectural trends.

It was built by William Salters not long before his death in 1833 and has been added onto many times. The Greek Revival influence coexists well with the symmetrical I-house pattern. The front “rain porch” is a regional feature. Behind the main house are outbuildings.

The house was built for a successful planter who was a prominent citizen in early Williamsburg District. It was listed in the National Register June 2, 2000.[1][3]
