Town of Abbeville​

Welcome to the Good Life

​Abbeville, Mississippi

Abbeville is a small, quaint town located in Lafayette County on State Highway 7. Founded in the early 1800s by pioneers from South Carolina, our 450 citizens make up a friendly town with a wonderful sense of community. 
Abbeville citizens are employed in occupations ranging from the medical field, education and banking, to construction and farming. Our retirees enjoy our town for its laid-back atmosphere and hunting and fishing opportunities. For residents and tourists alike, the short drive to the neighboring town of Oxford provides a variety of entertainment – SEC sports, performing arts, a vibrant music scene and art galleries galore. 
•10 miles north of Oxford, Mississippi (home of the University of Mississippi) and 15 minutes from Oxford-University Airport
•17 miles south of Holly Springs and U.S. Highway 78 (designated as future Interstate 22)
