About Sumter County

Founded in 1832, Sumter County was named after General Thomas Sumter of South Carolina. Sumter County is a small rural county located in the Black Belt Region of West Central Alabama.

There are four elementary and middle schools, one high school, one  university, and one private school. There are seven towns located in Sumter County with Livingston and York being large enough to fall in the city category. Agriculture is still a main source of income in Sumter County. The major farm commodities include beef, forestry, forages, and catfish. Seventy percent of the county's 921 square miles are forested. Major industries are Chemical Waste Management, Mannington Wood Floor, Big River Industries, Livingston Box, Cuba Timber, Prystup, and McElroy Truck Lines, Inc.

Sumter County families are living in a world of change. Extension programs will continue to aim at helping them to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to cope with their future. Education programs will focus on six main program areas designed to meet the needs of Sumter County citizens. They are: agriculture, forestry and natural resources, urban and nontraditional programs, family and individual well-being, community and economic development, and 4-H and youth development.

The Extension office has  active programs that include NEP, TGIF, 4-H summer camp, kids fishing derby, EFNEP, forestry and natural resources, farm safety day camp, water festival, and hunter education.
