Underground Railroad Driving Trails
Spend a day, or two, traveling the countryside and learning about the history of the Underground Railroad throughout Ripley County, as well as other places of historic note. Five driving tours are outlined in a free booklet that you can follow, mile by mile. The trails all begin on the Ripley County Courthouse Square in Versailles. Brochures are available at the Ripley County Historical Society (on the Courthouse Square in Versailles), OR the Ripley County Tourism Bureau located at 220 E. US 50 in Versailles. Brochures are located outside the Tourism Bureau/Welcome Center so they are available 24/7.
