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)
•1 hour from Memphis International Airport and Tupelo Regional Airport​

  • AutumnFest ​
  •   The people of Abbeville are already looking forward to Autumnfest 2019.  Planning will soon begin for our Fall celebration.  Check back later in the year for details and dates.  Autumnfest is always a fun time to gather family and friends for a little pre-Christmas shopping.  We never fail to have a great variety of items to purchase.  Our vendors are comprised of local artisans and we also have talented people from surrounding areas come to share their products with us.  Not only will there be great gifts to buy, but through out the day, you will have the pleasure of being entertained by varied performers and fed by excellent cooks.  Autumnfest would not be complete without including children, whom we also provide activities for.  There is something for everyone at Abbeville Autumnfest.  Be sure to check back for dates and be sure to mark your calendar.  We look forward to seeing you there!

  • Growth is good!
