Stateburg is a census-designated place (CDP) in the High Hills of Santee in Sumter County, South Carolina, United States. The population was 1,380 at the 2010 census.

Stateburg is located within a larger area in which many notable colonial & early South Carolinians owned homes to which they escaped the summertime malaria & other illnesses, High Hills of Santee. In the 1780s, after the South Carolina General Assembly decided to move the state capital from Charleston to the central part of the state, Stateburg lost by only a few votes to a place called Granby's Ferry on the Congaree River near the confluence of the Broad and Saluda rivers. Granby's Ferry soon was renamed Columbia, which is still the capital.

In 1785, Stateburg became the county seat of Claremont County and served as such until Claremont County was dissolved in 1800.[3]

Borough House Plantation and Church of the Holy Cross are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[4]
