The Law Office of Ashley Aulls, P.A. | Sumter County

Sumter County was established in 1853 and was named for General Thomas Sumter, a general in the American Revolutionary War who later served the state of South Carolina as a member of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate. Many of the original settlers in Sumter County migrated from South Carolina.

In recent years, Sumter County has seen its population increase because of the expansion of The Villages, a retirement community in the northeastern corner of the county. According to the United States Census Bureau, the 5.4 percent increase in the population of The Villages for the 12 months ended July 2014 made the community the fastest-growing city in the nation for the second year in a row.
