Named for Thomas Sumter, a hero in the American Revolutionary War, the first English-speaking settlers arrived in the 1740s, establishing roots along the banks of the Wateree River. Incorporated as Sumterville in 1845, its name was shortened to Sumter in 1855. Today, Sumter is the seat of Sumter County, and its largest city.
