P.J. Ahern Home Museum
The Ahern house was designed in the Classical Revival style by the Burdsal Company based on a floor plan designed by Mr. and Mrs. Ahern. The first floor consists of a central hall, music room, parlor, library, dining room, kitchen, butler's pantry and powder room. The second floor consists of four bed rooms, two baths, a nurse's room and a sleeping porch. The latter was added in 1918. All six children slept on the porch during the summer.

Ace Of Clubs House
This Italianate two-story brick mansion with a basement, spiral staircase, and twenty-foot tower is unlike any other in Texas. Its octagonal rotunda connects to a rectangular salon and three other octagonal rooms, forming a cloverleaf pattern very like an Ace of Clubs. Architectural historians compare it to such well-known Southern "follies" as Longwood, in Natchez, Mississippi, and San Francisco, near Garyville, Louisiana.

The beautiful restored Perot Theatre, located in downtown Texarkana at 3rd and Main St, has been a landmark since 1924 when it opened as the Saenger Amusement Company's "Gateway to the Southwest" theatre.
Fully restored by the City of Texarkana, TX in 1979-80, the building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Texarkana natives, H. Ross Perot and his sister Bette, through the Perot Foundation, contributed much of the restoration costs in memory of his parents, Mr. & Mrs. Gabriel Ross Perot.

The Regional Arts Center
The RAC began life as the first Federal District Courthouse in Texarkana. Construction was started in 1909 but not completed until 1911 since it was in the middle of the "bawdy" district. Workers would do a morning shift, but not return.
Our Visual Arts Program is year-round. National and regional touring exhibits are displayed in the high-secure galleries while regional and local exhibits are on view in the Hall Galleries, many of which are either organized by TRAHC or are presented under TRAHC's direction.
