I recently visited this historic site and was so glad I did. There are displays in the home that ranged from artifacts recovered from the property to books owned by Pinckney himself. I learned a great deal from the displays and information posted inside. You...More

I’ve got the impression that is site is a bit overlooked because of the very close vicinity to Boone Hall Plantation. But if you’re in the neighbourhood, it is well worth a visit. Charles Pickney played an important role in American History, in the existing...More

There is no visitors center and no entrance fee in this historical house. The history in informatively displayed in several rooms in the house. Around the house you can walk a nice trail.

The Charles Pinkney Home is a very nice educational experience in Mt. Pleasant. The home is a reproduction of the original but has a lot of very interesting and well presented information about his life. There are also some nice areas to walk and/or picnic.
