General

Commercially and culturally one city, but two separate municipalities, one in Texas, and one in Arkansas. The Federal Building is only one of its kind in America. Photo island on State Line Avenue in front of the post office is a popular photo spot; tourists can stand with one foot in Texas and the other in Arkansas.

Nations only bistate Justice Center serves two states at State Line Avenue and Broad Street. Center houses courts and jail for two states, two counties, and two cities. Like the Post Office, the Justice Center is built squarely on the Arkansas-Texas line.

Home of the Texarkana Community College and East Texas State University at Texarkana.

A Scott Joplin mural, at 3rd and Main Streets downtown, colorfully depicts the life and accomplishments of the Pulitzer-Prize winning musical pioneer from Texarkana. In the first two decades of the 20th Century, Texarkana's Joplin was America's "King of Ragtime." Joplin's works have been recently rediscovered; best known as composer of "Maple Leaf Rag," his music was utilized as theme in movie, "The Sting."
