State 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.

Perot Theatre
Located at 219 Main Street, downtown Texarkana. Originally part of the Saenger Amusement chain, the Perot first opened in 1924. Its Italian Renaissance style has been preserved and the facility is now a favorite of performing artists from all over the world. From September through May, the theatre is home to one of the nation's major performing arts series presented by TRAHC. For show ticket information, call 903-792-4992. To schedule a tour, call 903-792-8681.

Regional Arts Center
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.
