Charles Pinckney National Historic Site preserves a portion of Charles Pinckney's Snee Farm.[5][6][7] The site is located at 1254 Long Point Road, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

Pinckney fought in the American Revolutionary War and became one of the principal framers of the United States Constitution. He served as Governor of South Carolina, and as a member of the United States Senate and the House of Representatives. He was President Thomas Jefferson's minister to Spain.

The main house on the farm was constructed in 1828, after Pickney's death.
