Our family loves visiting National Park Service sites including lesser known obscure ones. It would be hard to be more obscure than the Charles Pinckney National Historical Site in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The park celebrates the life of Charles Pinckney who authored parts of the United States Constitution and is one of the original signers of the document. He also had a very long and distinguished career in South Carolina politics.

We mainly came to Mount Pleasant to tour Boone Hall Plantation but chose Boone Hall over other plantations in part due to its proximity to the NHS. The entrances are basically across the street from each other. The park is set on 28 acres of what is left of Snee Farm, the country estate of the Pinckney family. Admission to the site is free. The house currently there was built after the Pinckney family sold the property and is used as the visitor center. There is a short (around 20 minutes?) film that is shown on demand and gives insight into the life of Charles Pinckney and the history of Snee Farm. The other rooms in the house have various displays that further tell the story of the site.

We printed off the junior ranger booklet before arriving and completed most of it in our hotel room. This gave us a little more of an idea about the site before visiting and also ensured we didn’t have to spend so much of our time there working on the booklet. There isn’t a lot to see and do at the site. If you took your time and read every display, watched the film and walked the trail you would still be hard pressed to spend 2 hours here. We really enjoyed our visit and are glad we stopped at Charles Pinckney National Historic Site.

We were running low on time but wanted to get a plantation tour in our mini-vacation. We found the Charles Pinckney plantation with a self-guided exterior tour and inside short video and info from the ranger. We spent maybe an hour in total and it was nice to find out more about one of the signers of our constitution.

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.
