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)

  • ​​​AutumnFest 2016!
           AutumnFest 2016 was another successful year.  The vendors were pleased                  with attendance and the attendees enjoyed the day.  Staged entertainment                seemed to be a hit with everyone, the aminal petting area was great for the                kids, and the bull riding was a site to behold!!  Please be sure and check our                site later in the year for information regarding events in 2017.         

  • Growth is good!
The Town of Abbeville is constantly seeking ways to improve.  2016 was a great year for Abbeville in many ways.  Our water system has been the focus for much of the past year and we were rewarded with many improvements.  We now have fire hydrants that cover most of our city boundaries.  The addition of these hydrants, along with, new and larger water lines will provide our residents with much needed fire protection and the possibility of reduced insurance rates.  The Town also reassed its speed limit posting, and with the help of Lafayette County, revamped our speed limit signage.  The Board of Abbeville and the people who call this home diligently look for ways to improve our town.  We welcome you to come grow with us in 2017.
