Charles Pinckney National Historic Site
Charles Pickney was an author and signer of the US constitution. This historic site marks the location of one of the many family plantation properties that he inherited from his father. The house, while it is a historic 19th century rice plantation house, is not the same one that the Pickney family used on their visits. The house has exhibits about the Pickney family history, Charles’s role in the revolution, and the operations of a rice plantation.
The path around the grounds is paved and the museum exhibits are accessible. A small outdoor elevator can be used to access the porch and house interior.
The parking area is large enough for RVs. House
