122 N. Washington St., Sumter, South Carolina
The Sumter County Museum is represented by structures dating from an 1812 one-room cabin to the new Heritage Education Center. Relocated from the Pinewood area, the Weeks Cabin was lived in for more than 150 years by several families, including slaves, freedmen, and tenant farmers.
Other structures include exhibits on farming life, the railroads, and transportation. The turn-of-the-century barn holds a carriage and a classic surrey, complete with fringe on top. A pole barn contains an array of farm equipment used when mules were the primary mode of power in the South.
The handsomely furnished Williams-Brice House (c.1916) includes period rooms; an exhibit on Gen. Thomas Sumter, the “Always Coca-Cola” exhibit, with several examples of Coke memorabilia; and rotating exhibits on topics ranging from World War II to quilts. The gardens surrounding the house are beautiful year-round
Along with the Carolina Back-country Exhibit that portrays life as it was on a farm from 1750 to 1850, it’s worth seeing the brand- new 10,500-square-foot Heritage Education Center that features the Witherspoons of Coldstream Plantation Collection.
Open Tues. – Sat. year-round. Closed holidays.
Some people like to travel by train because it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of an airplane.
I think my pilot was a little inexperienced. We were sitting on the runway, and he said, “OK, folks, we’re gonna be taking off in a just few—whoa! Here we go.”

Just found the worst page in the entire dictionary. What I saw was disgraceful, disgusting, dishonest, and disingenuous.
