Texarkana Texas History
The area, now known as Spring Lake Park, is an important part of the region, bordering the Brazos River and the Texas River and bordering the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, the San Jacinto River Valley and the Texas State Park.
The population of the area is 101,198, and the side of Arkansas is Miller County, with a population of about 1.5 million, or 1.5 percent of the total population of Texas. This year, the population of the entire metropolitan area is the same as that of Texas City, Texas, a city of more than 2 million people.
Texarkana has 52,179 inhabitants, with 30,497 people living on the Texas side and the city of Arkansas, 3,528 inhabitants, in 1890. In 1890, there was no city in Arkansas with a population of more than 3,528; but when parts of that city grew and prospered during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the population on the Texas side quickly outpaced that on Arkansas.
Texas and Arkansas split off from the Union during the war of the states, and after that they had no home to return to, so many moved from the east and south to the west in search of land. Arkansas was readmitted to the Union in 1868, but the states of Texas were readmitted in 1870.
Little River County was removed from the MSA that same year and in 1983 the official name was shortened to Little River, which is still used as the county's name at its original location.
It consisted of what was then called Little River County, Texas, and was then part of the Dallas - Fort Worth Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). It included the city of Dallas, the capital of the District, and the city of Austin, and included the cities of El Dorado, El Cajon, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, and San Marcos. It covers the cities of Houston and El Paso, as well as Corpus Christi, Dallas and Austin counties.

William W. Wooten, who was to become a central figure in the founding of Texarkana, filed a petition to annex Texas County in his home state of Arkansas.
The postal officials granted the request and on February 5, 1903 the postmaster general issued a stamp, the stamp of which was changed to read "TEXARKANA - ARK - TEX," and it was inserted under the name "Texarkana, Texas, United States of America." Known as Texarkanas of Texas, the post office was in operation until 1892, when it was closed, but it functioned again until the end of the Civil War in 1891, and was then called Texas County for a few years before being reincorporated into Texas County after Congressman John Morris Sheppard obtained a postal order that officially changed its name to "Texarksana - Arkansas - Texas." TexARCana was the county seat of Miller County in Arkansas, so marriage licenses purchased in Miller County, Arkansas, were not valid in the state of Texas.
The federal court, which also houses Post Office 17 in downtown, is located just across the Arkansas-Texas state line and is the only federal administrative building to span the state lines. The border between Texas and Arkansas, established by the United States of Texas in 1841, runs through the center of the city and is centered in the historic federal courthouse and the post office buildings, which are located in half of Arkansas and half of Texas.
Texarkana is unique in that it crosses both Texas and Arkansas and is named after the community that was named after it.
In fact, the city's name is a union of Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana, with Louisiana less than an hour's drive south. The twin cities Texarkana are located on the Texas side of the Mississippi and border with Arkansas. Both names are composites of "Texas, "" Arkansas "and" Louisiana "because Louisiana is 30 miles away.
