There isn't much here, but at least it doesn't cost anything. If you are short on time you would be better off seeing one of the forts or spending some time at Patriots Point.

If you're expecting Gone With The Wind - well, you'll be disappointed. But this home and farm of Charles Pinckney, a signer of the Declaration, is probably more typical. Free and worth a stop.

This is a charming oasis of a park that is less than a mile off the busy highways just north of Charleston. It’s a perfect place to take a break, have a picnic or stroll on the trails and imagine life on a rice plantation in the 1700s. The museum has two distinctive themes illustrated by photos and artifacts. One... More

We love visiting historical sites. It was neat to see the grounds and the house. The boardwalk out to the marsh was really nice.

I'm not sure if I'd recommend a special trip all the way out here to check out this attraction, but if you're already in the area, it's worth a stop. The staff is friendly, the video is informative, and the artifacts are interesting. And, best of all, admission is free, so definitely check it out if you are able.

A brief stop at this national historic site is worthwhile and it's free. There is a small museum inside the old farmhouse as well. It's across the road from Boone-Hall so take it in if in the area.

A park volunteer at another park said this place was not worth the time - and now I know why. There is a 20 min video on Charles Pickney. Otherwise, you walk through the first floor reading the placards that are full of information on Charles and his political works. That's it. There is nothing for the kids to do... More

I am a travel writer who covers National Parks (npplan.com) and I was at the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site in April 2014. The park commemorates the South Carolina statesman who was instrumental in the formation of the United States Constitution and was a signer of the document. Located on the grounds of his former plantation just outside of Charleston... More

This small spot is a nice place to read up on local history; there are walking trails and a small home with interesting displays. Not so interactive, but if you are interested in American history, this will surely suit!
