What Bert Has To Say About Sumter Metro Area

Sumter, in the center of the state, is a small typically Southern town and county seat. Shaw Air Force Base and agriculture are the economic mainstays, but recent employment statistics and projections are weak. Downtown is nondescript but tidy with small areas of attractive housing mainly to the north.
