12 Years A Slave Book open page

The historical marker for Solomon Northup is located right on the corner of Congress and Broadway in Saratoga Springs, NY.

This marker honors the legacy of Solomon Northup, author of autobiography Twelve Years A Slave, published in 1853.

The corner in which the marker was erected marks the spot Solomon was met by Brown and Hamilton and was abducted from. The marker is directly outside the Visitor Center where there is an exhibition panel inside the Visitor Center for additional history.
