MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

The National Park Service is proposing the demolition of an 80-year-old building at a lowcountry historical site.

The Snee Farm caretaker’s cottage at Charles Pinckney National Historic Site poses a safety hazard to visitors and site managers because it is partially collapsed and overgrown with vegetation, according to the National Park Service.

Snee Farm, in Mt. Pleasant, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  The caretaker’s cottage was built in 1936.

Through the National Historic Preservation Act, the National Park Service is developing mitigation measures prior to demolition.  The public can comment on the proposed demolition until September 9 at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/projectHome.cfm?projectId=58009
