Bishopville is a city in Lee County, South Carolina, United States. The population was 3,238 at the 2016 census. It is the county seat of Lee County. For more than a decade before Bishopville was named in honor of Jacques Bishop, it was known as Singleton's Crossroads. The 465 acres (1.88 km2) of land was granted to Jacob Chamber by the state of South Carolina in 1786. Daniel Carter later purchased the property and it was once again sold to William Singleton in 1790. This was where the name Singleton's Crossroads originated.
Bishopville has a heart of a city that defies many others. The people are full of energy and they also are just very humble people to communicate with. That is one thing that I absolutely love about the city. The people, the festivities, and their energy are just some of the values that I have not seen in many others. Those values are what make the city special.
I lived in Bishopville, SC nearly 5 years and while here I have witnessed both good and bad experiences. Although I am big upon my safety and my families safety, I am more so afraid of the failure that this town will bring upon other kids coming up that aren't so head strong. I wouldn't recommend Bishopville as a place to reside for a family with growing kids that have education interest and wants to further themselves.
