Wicklow Hall Plantation is a historic plantation complex located near Georgetown, Georgetown County, South Carolina. The complex includes the plantation house and several dependencies. The Wicklow Hall Plantation House is a two-story, Greek Revival style clapboard structure on a low brick foundation. The main portion of the structure was probably built between about 1831 and 1840 and enlarged by additions after 1912. Also on the property are a kitchen, corn crib, carriage house, a small house (believed to have been slave quarters), stable, privy, and a schoolhouse. Wicklow was a major rice plantation during the mid-1800s, and associated with the prominent Lowndes family of South Carolina.[2][3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
