Downtown Sumter

The Historical Heart of Our Community.

Through our aggressive revitalization program, much has been achieved during the past few years including a new streetscape, renovations of buildings, development of several plazas that incorporate beautiful fountains and the construction of new buildings. Downtown Sumter has also become the place that Sumterites go for entertainment. Outdoor concerts, market, festivals and a multitude of shows in the beautiful Sumter Opera House, Dig it! Downtown.
