Explore Abbeville

By:Ernie Wiggins


About 20 miles south of Honea Path along S.C. 20 is a pearl of southern charm, Abbe​ville.

Long known for its stately ​opera house, which has been at the center of town since 1908, Ab​beville’s charm has not been diminished by current economic hardships that are evident all along the Heritage Corri​dor.

Though venerable structures like The Belmo​nt Inn, which pre-dates the Opera house by five years, is in transition, the town’s nearly 300 well-preserved buildings that fan out in all directions from the center of town are a history buff’s delight, particularly those interested in late Victorian architecture.

There’s no need to pack a lunch for a visit to Abbeville as restaurants abound in and around the historic district.
