Welcome to Aberdeen

 
Aberdeen is a small town full of historical character. Settled by Scottish emigrants in the 1700's, the town was known as Bethesda and Blue's Crossing before it taking its current name towards the end of the nineteenth century. Aberdeen grew to be a railroad and commercial center, and it has been flourishing ever since. In its historic downtown, there are over 100 buildings with architectural styles dating from the late 1800's into the early 1900's. A host of galleries, boutiques, art exhibits, and antique and collectible stores are sure to keep you busy. But the chance to engage with this town's rich history and culture doesn't end there. Stop by the Union Station Railroad Museum and see the preserved Union Station Depot, a renovated caboose, and 1 of only 2 inspection cars left in the entire United States. Or, pay a visit to Malcolm Blue Farm, an 1825 farmhouse and museum that lets you have a glimpse into the lives of early pioneers in the area. Explore exhibits that include "The Pioneer Woman" and the "Battle of Monroe's Crossroads," or head to the Malcolm Blue Tobacco Pack House for an interactive learning experience for children; there's everything from a quilting room to carving and whittling programs.
 
Aberdeen is full of character, charm, and history that make visitors want to stay. Whether you're moving here or just want to experience our town for a weekend, we can't wait for you to see all that Aberdeen has to offer!
