Northup Trail
101 Murray Street
Alexandria, LA 71301
United States

The Northup Trail allows visitors to follow the path of Solomon Northup during his 12 years as a slave in Central Louisiana. Solomon arrived in Alexandria on the steamer Rodolf in 1841. From there, he took the train south to Lamourie where he disembarked and walked to William Prince Ford’s plantation by foot. So his journey began in central Louisiana. The trail follows his path through Rapides and Avoyelles Parishes and visits sites such as the Red River landing where Northup disembarked the Rodolf, the Epps House, the Bunkie Depot, and the Avoyelles Parish Courthouse.

For more information including trails & byways, visit our Northup Trail page.
