Principal author and a signer of the U.S. Constitution, Charles Pinckney once lived on this coastal plantation, though little remains of his old home. Nevertheless, the memory of the “forgotten founder” is preserved at the small visitor center, located in a Lowcountry farmhouse dated to around 1828 (a 20-minute orientation video is shown on request). Outside, only 28 acres of Pinckey’s once massive Snee Farm plantation remain undeveloped, accessible by a half-mile interpretive walking trail. Pinckney inherited the plantation in 1782, but was forced to sell it in 1817 to pay off debts.
