Coopers Town is a city in Abaco, the third largest island of the Bahamas. The town is the northernmost of the island's main centres of population. It was settled in the 1870s by the Cooper family from Grand Bahama. Early industry included pineapple and sea-sponge harvesting, but both industries have dwindled over the last century. A major impediment to the success of these industries was the lack of a natural harbour at Coopers Town. Prominent residents of Coopers Town have included current Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham.
