Downtown Texarkana is unique as a Bi-City, Bi-State historic core. Founded in 1873 at the junction of two railroads, State Line Avenue follows the Texas-Arkansas state line throughout the center of downtown and much of Texarkana. The architecture is of an impressive scale and reflects that of a prominent center for regional commerce and government with grand hotels, arts and cultural facilities, large government buildings and Union Station with several straddling the state line.
The revitalization of downtown is a priority for both cities. The downtown strategy focuses on small business development within the Main Street Texarkana District, supporting the Texarkana Arts & Historic District partners, Texas Cultural District Designation, Farmer's Markets and numerous annual events. Other major projects include the Hotel Grim redevelopment, Texarkana National Bank restoration, the Courthouse Square Initiative, Regions Bank re-development, and other projects that include public spaces and new living spaces.
In addition, Main Street Texarkana works to stimulate business opportunity in the Main Street Program area offering loan and grant programs to support business development and property improvements. It is an exciting time to be in downtown! Availability is updated here regularly. Please contact Main Street Texarkana for more information on expanding or locating downtown.
