Bishopville, the county seat of Lee County, was settled in the 1800's and was originally called Singleton's Crossroads. Lee County is South Carolina's largest cotton-producing county and home to the South Carolina Cotton Museum, located in downtown Bishopville. Original tools, interactive displays, and amusing stories in an authentic setting allow you to experience the cotton cultivation way of life.
Bishopville is also home to one of the most breath-taking attractions in South Carolina, Fryar's Topiary Gardens. This three-acre garden is visited annually by thousands of tourists and has been seen by thousands more on television specials and in dozens of magazines.
