Photographer’s Island

500 State Line Avenue, Texarkana

Get your picture made in Arkansas and Texas at the same time with the Federal Court House as your backdrop!  One of the most unique features of Texarkana is it has the ONLY U.S. Post Office sitting in two states. This Post Office straddles the states of Texas and Arkansas and has separate zip codes, 71854 for Texarkana, Arkansas and 75501 for Texarkana, Texas. Built in 1932-33, the structure features a base of pink granite from Texas and walls of limestone from Arkansas. Remarkably, Texarkana boasts this to be the most photographed courthouse in the United States, second only to the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. 

Experience a truly unique photo opportunity while straddling the Texas / Arkansas State Line at Photographer’s Island, located in front of the Post Office.
