“Great photo op”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

If you are a tourist in Texarkana you have to stop and get a picture on the State Line. We were told that this is the only federal building in the United States in two different states. There were some people cheering on a half marathon the morning we were there, and they couldn't have been friendlier. Also don't miss the beautiful Confederate statue just across the street.

“Good stopping point for photo op”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Just cool. The building is neat to look at and the photo op is nice as well. People were nice. Would have been nice to go into the building but no cameras were allowed.

“Living on the line”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

The main post office is located in Texarkana, Texas and also in Texarkana, Arkansas. The main post office straddles the Texas Arkansas Border. A great photo op for the family.

“One building, two states”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

My husband is writing a photography history of Texas courthouses and we found the one in Texarkana with a single sign saying "Texas/Arkansas", seems like it's right on the border and serves both states.
