I always visit any NPS sites near my travel destinations. CPNHS was a short drive to a beautiful home surrounding by amazing trees and trails. Watch the 15 minute film in the visitor center to learn more about Pinckey and his contributions to our country.

I love history. Mostly Civil War era history and I had not heard of Charles Pinckney. It was a great look at this family. A very colorful family. Worth an hour of your time if you're nearby.

This place is a hidden gem. So much history involving this site. It makes you understand what Mount Pleasant and Charleston was all about durning the 1700's. There is no cost which makes it even better.
