Administrative history

Abbeville has a long history with documents dating back to 1906. Earliest sacramental records are dated 1906. Beginning in 1950, sacramental records are found in the sacramental register of Our Lady of the Smile, Deerhorn, Manitoba. It is unclear when Abbeville first had a chapel, but in 1935 the Catholic Church Extension Society of Canada was asked for funds for a furnace. The area was originally called Vannes. In 1955, the priest, was serving five missions: Abbeville, Deerhorn, Eriksdale, Suffern and Fisher River. He wrote that the district used to be called Abbeville, but "Abbeville is steadily decreasing and Deerhorn is steadily increasing so that before long the same district will have to be called Deerhorn and missions. About 1962 the church building was in such bad condition that it was demolished. Sacramental records indicate that Abbeville's chapel was closed in the 1950s and Deerhorn's 1950-1956 listings include Abbeville. Records from 1906 to 1957 are with those of Ashern. Abbeville does not appear on the current Manitoba highway map, but Deerhorn is located on No. 6 highway between Eriksdale and Lundar.
