When I saw the listing for the Charles Pinckney Naational Historic Site, I had no idea who he was, but after visiting the site, I can say that I now know him as a designer and signer of the Declaration of Independence, a governor and representative of South Carolina, and a man who devoted himself to public service.

Not exactly a destination, but an interesting side trip when visiting Boone Hall. Interesting house and yard. Easy access and parking.

This hidden gem is free, beautiful, basically across the street from Boone Hall Plantation, and a WONDERFUL place for pictures. My husband and I had our engagement photos taken here last year and they turned out amazing! (Note they will ask you to leave if you are a professional photographer-we did not know this until we were leaving-but you could... More

Having visited and enjoyed nearby Boone Hall the previous day, my husband and I were so pleased we came back and toured this equally interesting site. The house is lovely, the 20-minute film educational, and the displays in each room very informative. The ranger was gracious and enthusiastic. After we toured the house, we walked the well-maintained trail that weaves... More

My husband and I stopped here on a hot day looking for something to occupy our time. The house was full of historic pieces and the movie explained the history of Charles Pinckney. It was interesting but not worth going out of your way to see. The grounds are also small and pleasant to stroll around. Seems like more could... More

My sons love to visit national parks and earn junior ranger badges. This was a stop to earn a badge on the way to tour Boone Hall (it's right across the street). We learned about Charles Pinckney and the site was small enough to tour quickly. The grounds were very beautiful and the azaleas were beautiful!

Nice stop to see historic location. The house and grounds were well kept and interesting to see. The history of the people makes the spot.
