Pere Megret StatueFormally called LaChapelle, the land which became Abbeville was purchased by founding father, Père Antoine Désiré Mégret (Père is French for ‘Father’) on July 25, 1843 for $900. Megret named the town after his hometown in France. There were two people living on the land at that time, Joseph LeBlanc and his wife Isabelle Broussard, whose former home Father Megret converted into a chapel. The chapel burned in 1854, and St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church now stands at the same location.
