The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
Texarkana Texas-Arkansas is a divided city in the southern United States with a combined population of 61,230, as of the 2000 United States Census. The name Texarkana is a portmanteau, as the city is named for its occupancy of two U.S. states, Texas and Arkansas, as well as its reasonable proximity to Louisiana The point formed by the intersection of the three states' borders is actually 25 miles to the south.
In 1876, Texarkana, Texas, was granted a charter under an act of the Texas legislature, and a Texarkana, Texas, post office operated from 1886 to 1892. At some point after that, Congressman John Morris Sheppard secured a postal order officially changing the name to Texarkana, Arkansas-Texas. While the meaning of the name is clear, the actual origin is uncertain, and the name is believed to have been used prior to Texarkana's founding. One tradition tells of a Red River steamboat named The Texarkana, circa 1860.
Geographically Texarkana has two mayors and two sets of city officials; however, the two sides share a federal building, courthouse, jail, post office, labor office, chamber of commerce, water utility, and several other offices. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Texarkana enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
