The Button Capital Of The World Is Hiding In Small Town South Carolina And It’s As Weirdly Wonderful As You’d Expect
Talk about unusual museums that have graced the Palmetto State over the years! We’d be remiss on this subject if we didn’t include a feature here on the Button Museum, which still stands in Bishopville. Its creator, Mr. Dalton Stevens, who single-handedly earned the city the title of Button Capital of the World, was a musician and an artist. Stevens passed away in November 2016, but his Button Museum and works of button art are still in place, although the facility isn’t open quite as often as it was when Stevens was still alive.
Did you know South Carolina is the button capital of the world? Ever visited the Button Museum?
Address: Button Museum, 53 Joe Dority Rd, Bishopville, SC 29010, USA
