  • One of the best sites to visit in the Charleston area! There's a historic house and a nature trail. Artifacts on display from archaeological digs. Info on social, political, and architectural history.
  • Not too far off the highway so it's an easy drive. The grounds were well maintained. You'll find a lot of information on the history of the Pinckney family and the role they played in U.S. history. That said, the house isn't huge, and it's not the original structure. So that's a bit dusappointing. All in all, easy and quick stop if you're a history buff. Oh--it's free, one of the few "attractions" in Charleston that doesn't charge an outlandish fee.
