Line Post Office and Photographer's Island
Located at 5th and State Line Ave. in downtown Texarkana.
This Post Office is one of the most unique in America because
it straddles State Line Avenue putting it in both Texas and
Arkansas. An island, constructed especially for visitors who
delight in capturing a unique photo opportunity of standing
in two states at once, is located in front of the Post Office.
at 219 Main Street, downtown Texarkana. Originally part of
the Saenger Amusement chain, the Perot first opened in 1924.

world. From September through May, the theatre is home to
one of the nation's major performing arts series presented

Built in 1909 on the corner of 4th and Texas Blvd., it
originally housed the Federal Courts for Texas that could
not use the old post office building because courtrooms there
were on the Arkansas side. Features include ornate plaster,
a copper cage elevator, and a grand hall with a 26 foot ceiling.
The building is an example of Classical Revival architecture
and is built of limestone and ornamental iron. Today the Center
serves as the focal point for the visual arts and houses the
only art museum in the region featuring national touring,
juried and invitational exhibitions. The year-round programming
also includes classes, lectures, workshops, film series and
tours. For further information call TRAHC, 903-792-8681.
