Roadside America: The Button King

Attraction: The Button King Museum

Location: Bishopville, SC

Dalton Stevens is over eighty years old, and since 1983 he’s been attaching buttons to everything from clothing to cars to toilets. The result of insomnia, Dalton’s button fascination has gained him quite a reputation over the years, including appearances on The Tonight Show and Late Night with David Letterman. The museum is housed on the King’s property, in a Quonset hut. Even if Dalton isn’t around, the museum is open, a donation jar the only admittance fee.
