Abernathysville was located in the lower Stamp Creek area in what became known as the Old Macedonia Church and cemetery. The community was first named Abernathysville because of a family of 13 brothers who moved their from North Carolina. All the brothers were blacksmiths and came to work in the Stamp Creek furnace industry. A number of stores and homes were constructed to support the families and it became unofficially known as Abernathysville. It was often marked by this name on early maps. Later the community came to include other families along with the need for a cemetery and then followed by the Macedonia Church. Over time the name gave way to become Macedonia community.
