I'm really not sure why stateburg floundered -

It was intended to be the state capital, after the revolutionary war, but Columbia won out.

however, why Sumter grew and Stateburg didn't is a mystery to me.

If I had to take a wild guess - I would say that it has to do with agriculture. Sumter is in a better location for cotton distribution from Clarendon and Lee counties, and Tobacco from the pee dee. Stateburg is a little further up in the sandy hills.

Honestly the best way to see what the most "metro" like city in a state would be is to see how big their airport is... Greenville, Columbia and Charleston all have small airports. So not really a big metro. In terms of being the most progressive and growing it would have to be the upstate with Greenville and Spartanburg.

Columbia has the most big-city-looking skyline if you don't include hotel row on the beach at Myrtle Beach. As far as big-city metro? Columbia, Greenville and Charleston are comparable.

Default Housing

My mother wants to move to SC.... She's on a fixed income... She mention about living in government housing... Does anyone have any recommendations as to where would be a good place for her to live... Where she's living at right now you have to drive 45 mins just to get to a grocery store...Any suggestions would be very helpful...

You might start with the Columbia Housing Authority. Also, call the TN Development Corporation. They provide apartments at below-market rental rates. And Christopher Tower, a high-rise downtown might have some openings if your mother is 62 or older (not government housing, but some Section 8 I think).

Again. What does size have to do with anything? What does a big building stacked with floors of cubicles occupied by employees who hate being there.....do to make a city better/worse?

You dug up something from three years ago? I didn't say that having the most "big city" skyline in the state meant Columbia is the biggest city in the state. It's the largest municipality, but not because of the skyline.
