This is a "Free," site for public to come and enjoy the grounds and house and learn history about a person who was highly involved in the making and writing of the Constitution of the United States of America and you probably did not even know about! Beautiful home and just to sit on the Porch in the Rocking Chairs... More

This is a good little Nat park, and free. A lot of work has been done on this site and more is scheduled to be done. Easy handicap access as well as easy walking. Off the beaten path so large crowds are not common.

Right across from Boon Hall, it's worth a stop and is also a free attraction. Lots to see and just walking the property is beautiful.

This National Park Service property is only a small fraction of the size of Charles Pinckney's original plantation. Notwithstanding, it is an interesting spot to spend a 30-60 minute stay in the useum, including watching a short film about his life. If it's a pleasant day, the grounds (what are left of them) provide a pleasant stroll of 15-30 minutes,... More

Because there is so little left of the original Pinckney plantation and because there is so much not available on Pinckney's contributions to early American history this is a nice stroll in the country. There is a short film on Pinckney in the house on the grounds but other than a dry biography it really doesn't provide much info on... More

Dropped in on this historic site on a rainy afternoon. Watched a film about history of Mr Pickney and the plantation. The home there is not original but very nice. Took a minute to sit in the rocker on the back porch and enjoy the vast amount of land. It was a good choice.

I spent a very pleasant couple of hours at the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site, off US 17 north of Charleston. The museum within the house is quite good, and the reception volunteer was extraordinarily pleasant, chatty and kind. Don't miss the 18-minute film, which gives a very good perspective on the importance of Pinckney in the founding of the... More

We stopped off here before visiting Boone Hall which is just a short distance down the road. There is no fee to visit the museum and the grounds. It is a lovely little spot with a few trails and picnic tables. There is a museum in the house and separate restroom facilities. We viewed the short film in the museum... More

An interesting place to visit, and definitely gives a good image of colonial/revolutionary era plantation life. My family learned a lot about one of our most influential forgotten founding father. While it was rainy when we visited, we enjoyed walking the grounds and exploring the nature trail. While there is little, if any, evidence of the original plantation, there is... More
