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 also President Thomas Jefferson's minister to Spain, after he helped Jefferson win the presidential campaign of 1800.

The main house on the farm was constructed in 1828, after Pickney's death. There are no surviving structures from Pinckney's era on the property.
