Overview
More
Built in 1885, this Italianate Victorian home is uniquely designed in the shape of a club because (as legend has it) money to build the house was from the winnings of a poker game with a lucky draw of the ace of clubs. Filled with original furnishings dating from the 1720s to the 1940s from the last occupants of the house, it is regarded as one of the best attractions in the country. "You rarely see a house that is so perfect in every detail and spans the years of a family having the house for 100 years." --Bob Vila, star of TV's hit "Home Again" and "America's Guide to Historic Homes" "The Ace of Clubs House is a real Texarkana treasure." --Stuart Whitehurst, of PBS' hit series "Antiques Roadshow"

This was a very interesting place to visit. It is an old house in need of restoration, but, nevertheless, very interesting. Besides the shoes, the black and gold moldings were very different. A video gives you an introduction to the house. Well worth a visit.

The Ace of Clubs House is an experience of walking back in time to a simpler life in early 20th Century Texarkana (east Texas). The video history is interesting and complete, making the tour much more full and gives the tourist things to look for...More

The exterior of the house is the best part. Once inside, there are some period antiques that are quite lovely, but I was disappointed by the amount of "this is similar to what would have been here," items. The stories about the house are fascinating...More

I loved the docent - so British, so informed on the property. To raise money for the upkeep of this beautiful home, maybe a holiday open-house or charity reception could be hosted?
