Some great history, beautiful grounds, but for me a peaceful place for a cup of Joe, or lunch. If you need some tranquility, it's your place.

This is a great place to visit while in the area. Very different from Boon Plantation across the street. It was almost lost to a new subdivision. The fire hydrants can be seen on the plantation grounds.

This was a very interesting site to visit because of its political history which I was unaware of. This made Charleston known for its wealthy landowners and the patriotic initiative of one of the participants of the Declaration of Independence.

I found this historic site very interesting. Lots of details written about him and his life. Also exhibits explaining his participation in the founding of our country. Visiting here doesn't take long and can be easily done in an hour. It's all self guided but exhibits are interesting and easy to read. Would be interesting to any person who likes... More

I really like visiting historical sites and this one ranks up there with the best. It's a self tour so you can take your time looking around. There's a lot of nature to view and the place is kept in immaculate condition. It was very peaceful and the vegetation is amazing. One draw back is the amount of mosquitos (I... More

I really didn't know much about Charles Pinckney and his involvement with the Constitution, so it was really interesting to learn about his major contributions on that as well as the rest of his many years of public service and the rest of the Pinckney family. The visitor center and film were well done and enlightening. It was also interesting... More

Very well worth a visit. The property is well maintained and the short video inside the house is very informative.

We visited the Pinckney site upon a recommendation that popped up on my phone. We knew the name, but not much about Charles or the family. The site is easy to find, and very beautiful. It is free to visit (though you can make donations). There are a few markers showing details of an archaeological dig in the area from... More

By far the best thing about this place is the short movie that introduces the house and the Pickneys to the audience
