It says "Five of the most prominent delegates to the constitutional convention of Texas held March 1836, hailed from Pecan Point in this vicinity. Richard Ellis (an Attorney and Judge) was chosen President of the meeting and later served four terms in the Senate of the Republic.

Collin McKinney (A Magistrate) helped draft the declaration and served three terms in the house. A.H. Latimer (an Attorney) served two terms Samuel Price Carson (Attorney) became Texas Secretary of State and with Robert Hamilton (Financier) was an agent to the United States."

Visitors to the twin cities of Texarkana sometimes find themselves a bit confused. And it's easy to understand why. Texarkana is a border city where State Line Avenue divides Texarkana, Texas and Texarkana, Arkansas.

Who named Texarkana is up for debate. The popular version credits Colonel Gus Knobel who surveyed this section for the Iron Mountain Railroad right-of-way from Little Rock. The story goes that Colonel Knobel wrote Tex-Ark-Ana on a board and nailed it to a tree and remarked that this was the name of the town which was going to be built here.

Here's the rest of the story in case you're wondering. Colonel Knobel believed he was at or near the spot where the borders of three states met. So he named the city after these states - Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana.

The two cities are routinely referred to as the State Line Cities because the main thoroughfare, State Line Avenue, is the Arkansas-Texas border.

Texarkana's motto: Twice As Nice, appropriately conveys the political structure here. There are two of most everything: two city mayors, two city governments, two police departments, and two fire departments. Texarkana is a thriving metro-center serving nineteen counties in four states. A diversified economy is supported by manufacturing, agriculture, medical, transportation, and retail. Residents and visitors alike enjoy the moderate climate and a variety of recreational and entertainment activities.
