William Scarbrough House is a historic house in Savannah, Georgia. It is now home to the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, and it has largely been restored to an early 19th-century appearance.
Built in 1819, and subjected to a number later alterations, it is nationally significant as an early example of Greek Revival architecture, and is one of the few surviving American works of architect William Jay.

The Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, founded in 1966, features nine galleries of ship models, maritime paintings and artifacts that reflect Savannah's maritime heritage. Ship models include the SS Savannah (a ship owned by William Scarbrough), HMS Anne, the ship that carried James Oglethorpe and the first settlers of Georgia in 1732, The Wanderer, a ship that brought slaves from Africa to the United States in 1858, and RMS Titanic.
