Town near the middle of South Carolina known for its Iris Festival and its proximity to Shaw Air Force Base.

Geographically, it is two hours from the mountains and two hours from the beach.

It is a mid-sized town which is about equally proportioned between whites and blacks. Its economy is steady but it has a slightly high unemployment rate as of 2005.
I'm going to Sumter, SC to see the Iris Festival.

a place in south carolina that is so crappy, it makes you sick. (Also known as Scumter) This town is the most boring, stupid, ghetto town ever known to mankind. Anyone living here all their life or even a month will tell you never to go there unless you want pure hell. Nobody likes this place.
Person 1: Where do you live?
Person 2: I live in Sumter, SC. Also known as hell. How about you?

I hate Sumter, SC. It's so screwed up. This town is for people who get shmacked regularly.
