Also known as the River Bluff Plantation and the Beck-Bryant-Talbot Home, the William King Beck House is a historic house in Camden, Alabama. It was built in 1847 for William King Beck, one of the former United States Vice-President William Rufus King?s nephews.

The William King Beck House was established when Beck ventured into cotton planting while practicing law. He became a locally prominent man, being wealthy and well connected as he is. He married twice and this became his residence with his second wife, Anne Eliza Smith, the daughter of a neighboring planter.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage and declared a US Historic District, the William King Beck House is mostly attributed to the work of Alexander Bragg. Later renovations also took place apparently, when the house was acquired by JD Bryant during the late 1800s.
