The Charles Pinckney National Historic Site is a unit of the United States National Park Service, preserving a portion of Charles Pinckney's Snee Farm plantation and country retreat. The site is located at 1254 Long Point Road, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Pinckney (1757-1824) was a member of a prominent political family in South Carolina.

He fought in the American Revolutionary War, was held for a period as prisoner in the North, and returned to the state in 1783. He served as a delegate to the constitutional convention where he contributed to drafting the United States Constitution. He was elected to three non-consecutive terms as Governor of South Carolina, and as a member of the United States Senate and the House of Representatives.

He was appointed as President Thomas Jefferson's minister to Spain, after he helped the candidate win the presidential campaign of 1800. This Snee Farm site was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1973, and was designated a National Historic Site in 1988.

  • This is an out of the way shrine to a largely forgotten patriot, but one who played an important roll in the founding of our country, and an especially prominent "local". The exhibits are interesting....  more »

  • 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.
