Welcome to Lee County!

Towns: Bishopville – Lynchburg

In Lee County, “cotton is king”, and has been for over two centuries. In the fall as you ride through the beautiful county, you will see acres of white cotton fields, ready to be picked. Aside from the budding agriculture, Lee County offers its visitors beautiful gardens, parks, stunning architecture, museums, and statues honoring local heroes, veterans, and the military.

At the Bishopville Memorial Park, you can view the Gratitude Merci Train, as well as the statue of James D. Heriot, Lee County’s only Medal of Honor recipient. At the South Carolina Cotton Museum in downtown Bishopville, you can take in the early years of cotton as well as see what we’ve dubbed the world’s largest boll weevil. Historical buildings that feature unique architecture (and friendly folks), such as the Lee
County Court House (c. 1908) and Opera House (c. 1890), can be seen in Bishopville’s historic downtown as well.

Lee County is also home to:

  • 2,800 acres of pristine wetlands with Lee State Park
  • the internationally recognized Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden
  • a unique, roadside artesian well that produces crystal clear drinking water
  • the one-of-a-kind Button Museum filled to the brim with button-covered items
  • and the legend of the SC Lizard Man.
