Charles Pinckney Historic Site to close Monday

The house at the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site dates to 1828.

The Charles Pinckney National Historic Site in Mount Pleasant will be closed Monday for work on the parking lot.

The work will continue Tuesday, but the staff hopes to open the site that day, spokesman Bill Martin said. People planning visits Tuesday are advised to call 843-881-5516 or check the website at nps.gov/chpi.

The 28-acre park at 1254 Long Point Road is on the site of the Snee Farm plantation once owned by Charles Pinckney, a former South Carolina governor who signed the Constitution. The park includes exhibits, films and a half-mile loop trail.
