Abbeville was the site of Battle at Breakfast Creek and a Confederate
Memorial was erected in front of the county courthouse. The Wilcox County courthouse, built in 1903, is
listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Ocmulgee River, which is located within the city limits, provides
ample opportunities for boating, fishing and camping. The area is also home to many deer, wild turkey, quail
and other wildlife.
The city of Abbeville, famous for its large population of wild hogs, is
often nicknamed "Wild Hog Capital of Georgia". The Ocmulgee Wild Hog Festival is held annually in May with
food, arts and crafts, live music and various contests.
