Fodor's Review

This site includes the last 28 acres of the plantation owned by Charles Pinckney, a drafter and signer of the U.S. Constitution. You can tour an 1820s coastal cottage, constructed after Pinckney's death, that features interpretive exhibits about the man, the Constitution, and slave life. A nature trail leads to the archaeological foundations of three slave houses.

The Best Darn Historic Site I've Been To!!

I thought that this was a fun and exciting historic site to visit. It is really educational. It teaches you about the Afican-American lives back then. If you are ever in Charleston SouthCarolina you should really stop in to the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site...
