  • We had asked for recommendations on which plantation to see. We only wanted to spend a hour or so seeing some southern history. This plantation was worth the stop, it was free and also people on site ...  more »

  • We had a wonderful time today visiting the Pinckney home and park. The weather was perfect, the camellias were blooming and the 20 minute video presentation was an excellent introduction to the life and service of Charles Pinckney. I did not know how influential he was in American history. He was the governor of South Carolina several times, an ambassador to Spain, a colonel in the revolutionary war and instrumental in helping the Louisiana purchase to go through. After viewing the objects found in the house, which were mostly excavated from the property, we enjoyed a nice picnic lunch at one of the many picnic tables that are provided with a view of the lovely home, and beautiful live oak trees
  • This place is beautiful. We had a picknick under the trees and visited the house afterwards. There is no entrance fee but you can leave a tip. A ranger is also on duty to answer questions. You can also walk the grounds with a little self guided tour. Bring some bug spray though!
  • Not a big National Park, but a great way to spend a few hours learning about a true patriot. The park rangers were friendly and very knowledgeable. Free to visit!
  • Fun for the kids! Lots to learn and beautiful scenery.
  • I love National Park Service sites! The rangers and staff were super friendly and informative. And the property is beautifully maintained! I highly recommend visiting Charles Pinckney NHS for anyone interested in history or architecture.
