We enjoyed the town and wished to be there for ol' King Cotton's festival. Our two world famous alpacas, Stephen Colbert and his travel buddy, B. B. King, also very much enjoyed visiting Bishopville, the Chamber of Commerce, the Library and The Lee County Observer as they were passing through on a historic mission to Lake Placid, NY. From Bishopville we went to Columbia and later through Charleston on our return to Lake Placid, FL, but both ways, we had to stop in Bishopville to visit friends of more than 40 years. We also visited the nearby alpaca farm and had a grand time meeting their lovely animals and seeing a farm so well kept. We recommend all readers stop in to visit in Bishopville...sit a spell, enjoy the place, and check out the library.
