☀️ It’s a beautiful day in MTP! ☀️ And so the perfect time to discover southern history and nature all at once. Who’s visited the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site 🌾? Once a rice and indigo plantation, the famous governor’s former home is the perfect MTP site for a warm and relaxing day. ✨
Yay for pet-friendly free stuff! We're at the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site this afternoon, learning about one of the drafters of the U.S. Constitution. #charlespinckney #charlespinckneyhistoricsite #petfriendly #charleston #charlestonsc #southcarolina

We had a fun-filled first day at Charles Pinckney! Our class of kids had an awesome real life lesson on how by using LEGO® Bricks and engineering terms - our teamwork and communication learned can transcend language barriers! Two of our students recently moved to Mt Pleasant from #Germany and are still in an adjustment phase - but these enthusiasts didn't miss a beat🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪!! #charlespinckney #charlespinckneyelementary #germany #mountpleasant #charleston #engineering #littleengineer
I absolutely love this account of #charlespinckney being held in contempt of court in 1741! It just shows how he and Eliza's personalities were so perfectly suited 🤣 #research courtesy of #SCHS @sc_historical_society #theindigogirlnovel 13 days until THE INDIGO GIRL novel releases (Oct 3rd) Have you preordered?

Though it was a bit cloudy and hazy, crowds and staff at Charles Pinckney National Historic Site were glad to celebrate the eclipse at one of the furthest parks east on the line of totality. #Eclipse2017 #nps #findyourpark #charlespinckney #totality #totaleclipseofthepark #sun #moon
The replica cenotaph that Charles Pinckney ordered for his father's grave now sits on the grounds of the Charles Pinckney NHS. It reads: ⚰️ What is grandeur! what is power! Heavier toil! superior plan! What the bright reward of gain? The grateful memory of the good Sweet is the breath of vernal show’rs The bees collected treasure sweet, Sweet Music’s folk but sweeter yet. The still small voice of GRATITUDE The generous spark, for ever live, Teach me to Love, and to forgive, Exact my own defects to scan, What others are to feel and know my son A MAN. #findyourpark #nps #nps101 #nationalpark #charlespinckney #sc

We stumbled upon this beautiful farm while exploring the countryside of South Carolina. Trees of all kinds, centuries old, covered the grounds; but on a certain magnolia tree, there stood a single blossom in all its glory. What a simple yet wonderful reminder that God makes everything beautiful in its time, and YOU will have your time. It will be yours alone, and you will bloom into a magnificent display of God's faithfulness and promises. ❤️

All week we have been asking visitors to mark the parks that are special to them. From west coast to east and north to south, our visitors have been to many different sites across the country. Happy National Park Week! (Photo: NPS) #findyourpark #charlespinckney #nps
Mother Nature is just starting to paint everything green for Spring. Can't wait till everything is as lush as it was when we visited this South Carolina park.
No filter needed on this epic bouncy spring day. This is historical #longpointroad that runs between #sneefarm where #charlespinckney (1757-1824) one of the signers of the US Constitution lived. George Washington visited his farm here in 1791 during his presidency! On the left you can see the orchards of #boonehallplantation ... the oaks reach across this road and make a canopy that is so, so pretty! We are all just visitors on this planet 🌎 for our allotted time span of roughly 75-90 years and the beat goes on...live with eyes and heart wide open so we can feel the awe and wonder of it all🌎🙏🏻💜 #pinchme #southcarolina #charleston #boonehallplantation #charlespinckney #sneefarm
Early spring brings beautiful blooming azaleas to the park. (Photo:NPS/Taormina) #charlespinckney #findyourpark #flower #azalea #spring
This week has provided some great weather for taking a walk in the park (Photo:NPS) #walkinthepark #findyourpark #charlespinckney
With Washington's decision to retire was a major blow to the Federalist who scrambled to find a candidate for the 1796 Presidential election initially settling on Charles Pinckney they later backed John Adams. #historywithted #history #fastfact #us #unitedstates #unitedstateshistory #america #american #americanhistory #youtuber # goal #knowledgeispower #wisdomoftheday #information #historybuff #historylover #historynerd #historygeek #historyclass #historylesson #lecture #education #tutorial #federalist #charlespinckney
Can you guess why this variety of camellia is called "Pink Perfection" (Photo: NPS/Taormina) #charlespinckney #findyourpark #camellia #flowers #pinkperfection #pink
By far the largest of the camellia blooms this year-this particular plant has flowers growing 6 inches in diameter. (Photo: NPS/Combs) #charlespinckney #camellias #flower #nps

Visited the #CharlesPinckneyPlantation & #SneeFarm in $Charleston. #CharlesPinckney (October 26, 1757 – October 29, 1824) was an American politician who was a signer of the #UnitedStatesConstitution , the 37th Governor of #SouthCarolina , a Senator and a member of the House of Representative. Pinckney was born and educated in Charleston, South Carolina. His father, Colonel Charles Pinckney, was a rich lawyer and planter. On his death in 1782, he bequeathed Snee Farm, a plantation outside the city, and his numerous slaves to his eldest son Charles. #LateGram from #RoadTrip this past #Weekend #DroveAllNight Check another Item off my #PostDivorceBucketList .
