Charles Pinckney is a little known signer and contributor to our Constitution. The current house is not the one he lived in but they do offer a view into the man and his life. There is a 17 minute introductory film and each room has information on the man and his place in history. The park ranger was very informative.... More

Great place to visit for the Historian. It is very well taken care of, the property is beautiful, the house is in great condition. They show a short video of the history, have a small gift shop, a pavilion for the visitors with clean bathrooms and a water bottle filling station. And, it is free.

It was a great place to go and just look around the grounds it doesn't have all the houses that use to be on the property but I thought it was great that they left the foundations in tact so you know where each house stood at one time. You could visit there for at least 1 hour. The price... More

I am not sure what I was expecting to see. It was an OK place to walk and view the scenery. I recently got into the Revolutionary war history but did not see a lot of historical information. I can say this was marked off the bucket list

Lovely place, a bit out of the way, the house is enchanting and full of character and the setting appropriate. Staff were very pleasant.

We've been to a lot of National Historic Places and this is one of the more meh of them. The grounds are nice, the house is fine, but other than that this isn't anything too spectacular. The park ranger working the house and gift shop was very kind and she answered all of our questions. We did get some cool... More

We were down in Charleston for vacation, took a ride and found this Historic site. The place is so relaxing, picnic tables, restrooms and a small museum. The park ranger was a doll, she was very helpful and informative. We walked the grounds and just enjoyed the nature. Oh no charge for admission!

This is a 28 acre park and offers trails, picnic tables, and a museum in the 1828 Charles Pinckney cottage. It used to be a rice and indigo plantation. They have a museum inside the cottage but it seemed so bare with only some reading material and not very interesting at all. However, the cottage and grounds were lovely.

If you are a history buff, then its worth the trip. Don't plan to spend a lot of time, caus there isn't a whole lot to see, but it was a great little side trip.
