Charles Pinckney Historic Site Cultural Landscape Research

The Charles Pickney National Historic Site was established to interpret Charles Pinckney's plantation Snee Farm, his role in the development of the United States Constitution and the transition of the United States from a group of colonies to a young nation. Interpretive exhibits, located in a house built circa 1828 but which is not Pinckney related, highlight these areas as well as the influences of African-Americans in the development of Snee Farm.
Although a Cultural Landscape Report was completed for the property in 1995, recent archeology and other documentation discoveries have provided more information about the cultural landscape. The cultural landscape research will review these efforts as well as seek out new sources of information. Cultural landscape features identified through the research and fieldwork will be documented and incorporated into a GIS system being created for the park.
