City of Abbeville

Old 96 District

Old 96 District

This beautiful quaint town is where the Confederacy was born and died. The first reading of the secession papers giving birth to the Confederacy was held at the Burk-Stark Mansion. The "cause" died here as well when President Jefferson Davis and his war council met and formally disbanded the armies. The town square offers delightful shopping and dining opportunities, and a restored opera house that is the hub of live theater activity.
