This historic site is well done, free of charge and a nice stop. A very influential man in SC but not well known. You can take a picnic and enjoy the grounds. Something other than the usual Charleston tourist stops to visit.

The Pinckney house and museum is small with a few exhibits but the video that plays in one of the rooms is well worth the visit. Charles Pinckney was a very influential and active politician who wrote several of the clauses in the Constitution. He...More

For free, this is a beautiful site run by National Parks not far from other attractions and shopping. I came for the Ranger led talk and was impressed. It was an enjoyable time with a tour of the house/farm and history lesson.

This is one of those places that not many a people know about this place but an important part of US history and history of the area. If you truly look at the history then you will walk away with mixed feeling about Charles Pinckney.
