Spanish Mount Point is a historic archaeological site located at Edisto Beach State Park, Edisto Island, Colleton County, South Carolina. Spanish Mount is an oyster-clam shell midden, about 27 meters long and 3 meters high. The site is bordered by water and marsh on three sides. Spanish Mount dates between 2200 and 1800 BC and represents a transitional period of pre-history and the midden accumulated during the site’s short term occupation.

It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
