Rich in History and Natural ResourcesNamed after the city in France, Abbeville County has a rich historical and cultural heritage. The town of Abbeville, the county seat, is known for its quaint tree-lined square with bricked streets; the famous 1908 historic Opera House and its companion building, the Courthouse; the historic "pink" church, Trinity Episcopal, with its soaring spire; and fine Victorian homes like the Burt-Stark Mansion, a National Historic Landmark. The town of Due West is home to the 19th century Erskine College campus. Explore the county's natural resources and sample a variety of outdoor activities such as those found in Russell Lake, at Calhoun Falls State Recreation Area located on the lake shore, and Parsons Mountain in the Sumter National Forest.
