The National Park Service is taking steps to protect an 1828 home on a farm once owned by a framer and signer of the U.S. Constitution. The farm house at Snee Farm in Mount Pleasant is closed this Monday through this Friday as crews install a sprinkler system. The grounds and the restrooms at the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site will remain open.
The work on the house continues through next month, although by next week, the work won't affect visitors and the house will be open. The historic site preserves a 28-acre remnant of Snee Farm, the Lowcountry plantation owned by Charles Pinckney.
