    Abernathy Reviews

    I feel very safe here and see our local police multiple times a day. However, like many small towns the unkept land and houses make our town look trashy and unwelcoming sometimes.
    Review Abernathy
    The atmosphere here is just welcoming and homey. People make an effort to know your name and keep up with your life.
    The job market is stable here.
