Charles Pinckney National Historic Site

Charles Pinckney was a principal author and signer of the U.S. Constitution. This 28-acre remnant of his coastal plantation, Snee Farm, tells the story of a "forgotten founder" and his life of public service, the lives of enslaved African Americans on Lowcountry plantations, and their influences on Charles Pinckney. Groups will have the opportunity to explore sites of interest along the 1/2-mile trail, visit the 1828 farm house, watch a short film, and participate in a ranger-led program. Rangers or site volunteers may be available to come to classrooms.
