Whether the name Texarkana was borrowed from a steamboat in the 1860s or coined by a railroad surveyor years earlier, as various local legends suggest, the convergence of transportation and the collaboration of government have shaped the character and promise of the area.
Texarkana is a place whose name represents the coming together of three states - TEXas, ARKansas and LouisiANA. It is a city divided by a state line but powerfully connected in its commitment to growth and a pro-business culture. Living and working in a city that embraces the resources of two states, two counties and two city governments teaches that people here have learned important lessons about teamwork and collaboration.
It’s that cooperative spirit that permeates the people of the Texarkana Region and provides incredible opportunity and support to businesses that come to grow here.
It’s easy to see why various peoples, territories and states have staked their claim to Texarkana. Nestled in the big bend of the Red River in the eastern reaches of the Piney Wood Region, the area boasts an abundance of human resources accurately characterized as hearty, hard-working and loyal to business and industry.
