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!

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
