Pickney Colony

This long country road off Highway 278 just west of Rose Hill Plantation leads to an area with working farms that still raise cotton, cattle and horses. Some of these are still owned by members of the Pinckney family, whose forebears signed the Declaration of Independence.

At its far end, on a bend of the Okatie River, is the old Pinckney farm, with its gracious home shaded by a grove of pecans and oaks. Pinckney Colony is a very nautical neighborhood, meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel, with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights and sounds of.

One of the notable things about Pinckney Colony is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout’s exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
