America's Quirkiest Post Offices

Quirkiest Post Offices: Texarkana

Justin Cozart

Texarkana Post Office, AR and TX

Introducing the only post office that straddles two states—not surprisingly, Texas and Arkansas. Built in the early 1930s in response to complaints that Texans were being tried under Arkansas law, the Beaux-Arts building is diplomatically made of both Texas pink granite and gray Arkansas limestone. It also houses two courtrooms: one for Texas residents, the other for those of Arkansas. Get your picture taken at the entrance with one foot in each state, in front of the prominent “State Line” sign. 500 N State Line Ave. Ste 101, Texarkana, AR 71854; uspspostoffices.com and 2211 N Robison Rd., Texarkana, TX 75501; (903) 223-3800; uspspostoffices.com
