About Alexandria

Alexandria is a city in central Louisiana, located on the banks of the Red River. It was founded in 1805 and named after Alexander Fulton, a prominent businessman and landowner in the area. The city played a significant role in the transportation of goods and people during the 19th and early 20th centuries, serving as a hub for the timber, cotton, and oil industries.

One of the key transportation landmarks in Alexandria is the Kansas City Southern Railway Depot. Built in 1917, the depot served as a major freight and passenger hub for the region. It played a crucial role in the transportation of goods, particularly timber, from the surrounding forests to markets across the country. Today, the depot has been restored and serves as a museum, showcasing the city's rich transportation history.
