We had a great time being touristy at this spot. It is an impressive building and the town is very cute in that area. Almost as fun as jumping from Mountain and Pacific time zones in Idaho/Montana. there are two courthouses in Texarkana so make sure you get the right address.

I think this is the only place in the nation that has part of the building and functions for one state, and the other part of it for another state. I did not go inside, but it seemed like kind of a cool experience, just to see it.

We stopped here to break up the day's drive and it was really fun to be able to take photos with different people being in different states or standing with one foot in each state. Post Office is really cool inside too.

Need to see the old post office in downtown Teaxarkana. Go inside look at how the federal building is up stairs. Look at all the old brass po boxes. Not made like this anymore

Well if you are reading this you probably know all good and well about the neat post office in Texarkana that is half in AR and half in TX! Great sign out front where you can stand between the two states and makes for a great photo op. We saw other folks stopping for a photo or two as well.... More

We'd heard about this and since we had a little extra time to kill decided to check it out. It was actually pretty neat to go there and take a few pics. It was a pretty popular thing to do as we saw several others doing exactly the same thing. Very cool.

This was a must see, and very historical. Enjoyed it so much and will take grand children to see it when we return to this area.

It was a quick and interesting site, great photo pop, other than that not much else to see or do. The city should really take advantage of the uniqueness of "standing in two states at one time" but much like everything else in this town, it was severely understated.
