Sumter County Museum
The Sumter County Museum is dedicated to preserving the county's history for future generations. It is a museum complex comprised of a recreated homestead, the historic Williams-Brice House, and a garden. The house is the main museum building, featuring period rooms, a military exhibit, fine and decorative arts, and an impressive textile collection. The homestead features several buildings including a log cabin, barn, and smokehouse. Two of these buildings are original: the settler's house and commissary structures, which were built between 1812-1836. The museum acquired the Williams-Brice House when the estate donated it in 1972.
