City Directories and History: Enhanced SCDOT maps of Sumter County can be found under the MORE INFORMATION link. These maps show the county with significant historical details such as stores, churches, cross roads, and schools in the rural communities. (Old Road Maps – Sumter County, S.C.)
Individual sections of the 1940’s SCDOT road map are also available below. Sumter County is divided into (29) sections beginning with the northwest corner #1, and ending with the southeastern corner #29. These individual maps may also be accessed by searching for their captions, example: Section #1, will be loaded with accompanying images.
Due to the sheer size of these maps, it is best to view them on a computer. It will take a minute or more to load each – use the map features plus button, found at the bottom right corner of the maps page, to enlarge the map.
