The Archives is located on the Trenholm State Campus, 3086 Mobile Highway.
The Archives is on the National Historic Voting Rights Trail, All-American Road. This Historic Trail commemorates the historic 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery March (54 miles) when thousands of African- Americans and their friends of conscience marched to the State Capitol to petition for the unfettered right to vote.
The Archives is approximately 2 miles from the airport, which is also on the Historic Trail. (Simply follow the National Historic Logo Signs from the airport to the Archives.)
The Archives is approximately 1 mile from the Greyhound Bus Station. More than 15 hotels/motels and restaurants are within this radius.
The Archives is approximately 1/2 mile from the City of St. Jude, the campus where 50,000 marchers camped and participated in the “Stars for Freedom” rally, the night before marchers trekked to the Capitol to petition for voting rights and to hear Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. give his “How Long, Not Long” speech. Researchers can visit the Interpretative Center on the St. Jude Campus and learn more about the Historic Voting Rights March.
