Free to the public, very nice little spot to stop and view and is free to the public. Not much else To say we got there close to closing or we may have learned more, but we missed their movie they had.

This house was very tranquil and very interesting. We sat and relaxed on the balcony in the large rocking chairs after watching the film and seeing the artifacts in the house. There is an interesting little shop on site. It is very close to Boone Hall.

This was a must do for us, considering it belonged to one of the signers of the Constitution. We enjoyed seeing the place, but that was about all there was to it. There was a short movie, a little information about Pinckney, and some historical items. Yet, I left feeling that we could have learned so much more.

We enjoyed looking around the grounds which were very well mantained and particularly like the massive live oaks on the property. The history in the main house is also very interesting. Very well worth the trip especially if you are taking in Boone Hall as well.

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
