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.

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.
