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.
