We seldom miss the chance to visit a national park or site, and we're never disappointed -- especially when it's free, like this site. February isn't a great time to walk the grounds, but the area around the 19th century farmhouse yielded some interesting information about this farm that once belonged to Pinckney, whom you'll recall (of course) is one of the signers of the U.S. Constitution.

Inside is ample material to help you in any Pinckney trivia contest. No question the PBS video on the man and his contributions to South Carolina and the United States was the most appealing. The on-site ranger was attentive and informative and offered us information about an upcoming local event that we might want to attend -- an event dealing with the Hunley.

We spent an hour and felt good about the stop.

Just as enjoyable as a large plantation, this small, often overlooked historic site depicts early life in low country S.C. and the role this family played in the formation of the United States.

This is a small historical site that includes the site of the remnants of the Charles Pinckney plantation. This is a National Parks Service site and includes videos about the life of Charles Pinckney and family. There is also information on the contributions of the Pinckney family to the State of South Carolina and the United States. Although this attraction may not take a lot of time, it is very interesting, it is free, and well worth the time.
