This place more about paying homage to the man rather than a great site to visit. His actual house burned a long time ago. There is a movie that explains who he was . Turns out he is a forgotten hero of the post revolution era. Worth a quick stop.

Well preserved site and it was free. Wonderful hostess in the gift shop. Very helpful and friendly. The short video gave great background and showed that Mr. Pinckney was instrumental in the drafting of the US constitution. Lovely grounds.

Interesting history lessons about one of the Founding Fathers Charles Pinckney. Well kept by volunteers of the National Historic Site. We learned they do not get any funding from the Government that is really too bad. Nice grounds to stroll and take it all in

This stop was unexpected. I went to Charleston expecting to be inundated with Civil War history and instead I learned a lot about our Founding Fathers. This attraction is worth the visit as there is no charge and you can actually see the fragments and pieces that were actually recovered there on site.

Part of National Park Service. Limited access to actual living quarters and plantation house, but extensive exhibit on Charles Pinckney, a Founding Father, and the history of Charleston and SC in the Revolutionary era. NPS staff very helpful and friendly.

Stopped here while sightseeing in Mount Pleasant. Learned more about the history of SC I learned things about Charles Pinckney I never knew.

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.
