Main Street Society


Where is the heart and soul of our city? Is there a place where friends can get together and have fun? Yes, there is! It's the Historic Downtown District. Under the supervision of the Downtown Revitalization Board, a group of dedicated city employees, City Council, and The Mayor, Downtown Sumter has been receiving a facelift for the past several years, creating a foundation for a clean, bright and inviting place to meet, to explore and to live.


Did you know that Sumter's Downtown District is listed on the National Historic Register? With grants and other funds, new sidewalks, parking areas, and lights have been installed. There are also new shops and restaurants to explore as well and a number of community events to enjoy throughout the year.
