The Charles Pinckney National Historic Site is right across the street from the Boone Hall Plantation. We tried to do both in one day, going to the Pinckney site after our very long visit to Boone Hall. Big mistake. We were exhausted, our minds saturated with information. I was still "alive" enough to see that this is a very valuable... More

Beautiful grounds and great for picture taking. Peaceful and quiet place. Little room inside the house to watch a 20 minute video about the history of Charles Pinckney. The little gift shop has a great book selection!

If you like history, this place is certainly worth a visit. There isn't a whole lot to see or do here, but the content they do have is great for those interested in learning about the founding fathers.

As other reviews have said, there wasn't a lot here, but that's okay. It was a rainy day in January so we decided not to take the trip to Fort Sumter, but still wanted a taste of history. I suggested we check out the Pinckney house, and I am glad I did. I got to learn more about a family... More

Do not skip anything else in the greater Charleston area to come here. Come if you have things to see around or if you have free time. The site offers nice outdoors for walks. The farm house is not Charles Pinckney's house. The best part of the visit is the movie on Charles Pinckney that is really interesting (NPS standards).... More

There isn't much here, and that's what I liked about it. The 2 people work the gift shop on April 7th were great. They were very excited about the property and very informative. My one regret is that I didn't have time to watch the video about the house. I think it would have been interesting

Dedicated to one of the forgotten founding fathers, this proved to be a lovely day for a leisurely stroll on a beautiful spring day. The nature walk has an interesting mix of vegetation, even if it is a tad swampy in parts.

Great free place to visit while in Charleston. Not as expansive as some of the other "pay to see" plantations which makes it a must see for budget conscience tourists.

I came across the Pinckney Historic site as it was just a half a mile down the road from the Boone Plantation. It features a 200 year old house that maintains worthy exhibits about Charles Pinckney. The grounds are not large but there are some attractive walks.
