Texarkana: FUN FACT

Twice as Nice! The State Line Post Office and Federal Building is the only U.S. post office that sits between two states. Word has it that it's the most photographed courthouse in the country after the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. The building was constructed between 1932-1933 and tourists can take a picture on photographer's island in front of the post office while standing with one foot in Texas and one foot in Arkansas.
