Quiet national park, very close to Boone Plantation

You can make this a stop as part of your plantation rounds. Great for history buffs. Very close to Boone.

Charles Pinckney National Historic Site is just across the street from Boone Hall Plantation. It is a lovely location to have a picnic. Check out their calendar of events.

On the way to the Boone Plantation, this national park is a quiet respite from the hustle of Charleston! Stroll the grounds, visit the house, have a picnic, and have it all pretty much to yourself! If there are others there, it's big enough not to notice! Oh, and do sit in one of the four rocking chairs on the... More

I'll admit, I may not have stopped it is wasn't part of the National Park system, but I'm so glad I did. This homesite is a piece of our past, and charming! You can spend a little time, or a lot here. Be sure to have your National Passport stamped here!

Loved learning about Pickney and his role in SC history. Grounds were well kept and paths were easy to follow. Curator was very helpful.

Celebrating 100 years of national parks and this one was all dolled up with bunting and all! Wonderful!

History buffs look no further. This sometimes unknown or forgotten founding father is highlighted here. We owe much to Charles Pinckney and his contributions and sacrifices in the Revolutionary War and in drafting the Constitution of the USA. Children don't forget your history. I was upset to find out this past weekend the abysmal turnout at an event the park... More

Not a lot to see here. But it is free and the grounds are lovely. Many people were enjoying picnic lunches in the shelter or sitting under a tree.
