      Dalton Stevens (a.k.a. The Button King) is one of my very interesting neighbors in the small town of Bishopville, SC. At the age of 81 years old, Dalton has traveled all over the world and been on numerous TV talk shows displaying his unusual hobby of putting buttons all over everything from cars to caskets. Dalton’s Button Museum right next to his house is really a fascinating sight to see.

      Due to a bad case of insomnia back 20 years ago, Dalton has managed to create some incredible items. Buttons, buttons, and more buttons! That’s what you’ll see if you walk into the The Button Museum. In the museum there is a suit with 16,335 buttons, a guitar with 3,000 buttons, a 1983 Chevy Chevette with

      150,000 buttons, a Hearse with 600,000 buttons, and an outhouse with 26,000 buttons. There is also a Piano, a Bathtub, a sink, and two caskets covered in buttons too. I’ve been out to this museum quite a few times myself, and it is just really remarkable to see what this man has done.

      Dalton’s unusual hobby has attracted attention from numerous TV talk shows. On his wall in the Button Museum you will see all of his autographed photos from Johnny Carson, David Letterman, Regis & Kathy Lee, Geraldo, and Bill Cosby. All over his wall of fame are also newspapers articles and magazines such as People and Star and even the Guinness Book of World Records that Dalton has been in. The Button Museum ...

      • is a very nice, interesting little place that Dalton has created.

        Looking for a great place to get together and have fun with family and friends on Friday nights? Stop by the Button Museum. Every Friday night Dalton plays in a Country and Blue Grass concert at the hall next to the museum. They’ll even serve you food and drinks while you’re there. I’ve been out there several times with my parents. We always have a good time. If you go out to the museum, Dalton might even entertain you with the songs he wrote. He loves to sing his songs “Insomnia Shuffle” and “Button Man” to people who stop by his museum. He’ll even put on his button covered

        suit, grab his buttoned guitar, and take pictures with you in front of his button covered Chevy. He’s a very friendly and enjoyable person to talk to. If he’s around and the museum is closed, he’ll open it up for you. He’ll let you walk around and take pictures for as long as you want. You can even sign his guestbook when you leave.

        Dalton’s Button Museum is a must see for anybody visiting the Bishopville are. With a lot of hard work, patience, and creativity he has managed to create some wonderful pieces of art. His museum is open six days a week at 53 Joe Dority Road Bishopville, SC. Admission to the museum is free, but he does accept donations.
