Climate[edit]

The climate in this area is characterized by hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Abbeville has a humid subtropical climate, abbreviated "Cfa" on climate maps.[6]

History[edit]

Abbeville is the oldest remaining colonial settlement in East Alabama from Florida to the Tennessee line. Its older than the county of Henry and the State of Alabama. The city was named for "Abbe", a local Muscogee Indian man at the time of the town's settlement. The name means "a grove of dogwood trees". An active trading post was located in Abbeville in Alabama Territory early in 1819. The first settler gateway to the wiregrass was at Franklin located fourteen miles west of Abbeville.

It was designated the Henry County seat in 1833, gaining the distinction from Columbia. It was formally incorporated in 1853.[7]

In 1937, an African-American young man named Wes Johnson was accused of attacking a white woman and arrested. He was then removed from the Henry County jail and lynched by a mob of white men, his body found "bullet marked" and "swinging from a tree."[8] None of the members of the mob were charged with a crime.[9] A case did appear in front of the Alabama Supreme Court over impeaching the sheriff who was supposed to have been protecting Johnson. While the Alabama Attorney General openly declared that Johnson was innocent, the sheriff avoided impeachment.[10]

In 1944, an activist African-American woman, Recy Taylor, was gang-raped by six white men. Even though the men admitted the rape to authorities, two grand juries subsequently declined to indict the men (as documented in the book, At the Dark End of the Street).[11] From a historic point of view, "The Recy Taylor case brought the building blocks of the Montgomery bus boycott together a decade earlier."[12]

In 1950 Abbeville had a population of 2,162.[13]
