MOUNT PLEASANT, SC – The National Park Service (NPS) is developing new exhibits for Charles Pinckney National Historic Site and is seeking public comment on the latest draft of the exhibit plans. This is the third and final opportunity for the public to review the plan. The documents are available at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/document.cfm?parkID=366&projectID=62162&documentID=107949 for the public to review and comment now through December 13, 2020.

The draft exhibit package presents all the major details of the exhibit project to date. The public is invited to review and evaluate how well the overall story meets the goals and needs of the site and whether the graphics and text samples shown have the intended look, feel, and interpretation for the future exhibits.

This project will replace the current 900 square feet of exhibits with approximately 1,750 square feet of exhibits designed to engage and appeal to younger and more diverse audiences through inclusive content with immersive and interactive components, including a space where changing exhibits, demonstrations, and audience centered experiences can be presented. The exhibits will incorporate universal design principles to create barrier free access. More than 35,000 visitors per year will benefit from this project.

The exterior grounds of the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site are free and open to the public Wednesday-Sunday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm. The historic house remains closed. For more information on the park, please visit the park’s website at www.nps.gov/chpi.
