A national designation of Texarkana, Arkansas as a Preserve America community came about because we treasure and build on our past.  Incorporating the past into the present you may visit the corner of 7th Street and State Line Avenue to see the historic Ensign Fountain that provided for animals to be watered, and carry forward that spirit to the Jef”fur”son Dog Park.  Our past is evident in 4 large historic districts that includes a nearly 100 year old brick street in the Beech Street National Register District.  Special memories are formed at the Gazebo at Bobby Ferguson Park topped by a cupola rescued from the Cotton Belt Railroad Hospital.  Several public or private museums are here for your pleasure and learning.  From the memory wall in the Walk of Fame Park adjacent to the Arkansas Municipal Auditorium that hosted performances by Elvis, Johnny Cash, Mae West and many superstars of their era, to modern headliners, street festivals, to Union Station, we treasure our history and hope you will love our story.
