Schematic Design 1 introduces three broad ideas for new exhibits at Charles Pinckney National Historic Site. We are seeking public comment on these ideas.

This multi-phase project involves planning, design, fabrication and installation of new interpretive exhibits at Charles Pinckney National Historic Site's historic Snee Farm house and museum. New exhibits will tell a diverse and inclusive narrative, incorporate immersion and interactive elements that appeal to and engage wider and younger audiences.

This project will replace the current exhibits with new exhibits designed to engage and appeal to younger and more diverse audiences through inclusive content and immersive and interactive components, including a space where changing exhibits, demonstrations, and audience centered experiences can be presented. Exhibits will incorporate universal design principles to create barrier free access. More than 55,000 visitors per year will benefit from this project.

Charles Pinckney National Historic Site Superintendent Tracy Stakely states, "This is a unique opportunity to design exhibits for a truly exceptional site. Charles Pinckney National Historic Site does not only tell the story of Charles Pinckney, a signer and contributor of the US Constitution, but the story of the contributions of enslaved African Americans to Lowcountry history and culture. The public service of the Pinckney family was made possible by the enslaved service of African Americans. These stories are inextricably linked. These are some of the legacies we hope to explore within the interpretive exhibits. We are eager to hear public comments on the current proposals."
