Charles Pinckney National Historic Site is just a few minutes from my home but I had never been there until this past weekend. I went early on a Sunday morning when no one else was around. There is no admission fee and dogs on leashes are allowed. It is a delightful place full of history and the south. I don't know which I enjoyed more, the history or the nature walk. It was all so beautiful! I will go back!
Charles Pinckney was a principal author and a signer of the United States Constitution. This remnant of his coastal plantation is preserved to tell the story of a "forgotten founder," his life of public service, the lives of enslaved African Americans on South Carolina Lowcountry plantations and their influences on Charles Pinckney.
