I have lived in Abbeville for twenty-one years. It is a great place for retiring and also a historical town. It is the birth and deayh place of the Confederation. I would not recommend this town for a young person trying to look for bright opportunity. I say this because there only manufactory companies in Abbeville. The school system are very well ran. A lot of student that attend school there go off to great colleges.
