Can You Name These Texarkana Landmarks?
This video of some famous Texarkana landmarks had me trying hard to remember each one.
From old hotels to the classic landmarks all that made Texarkana famous are on display. The video is even set to the song "Texarkana Baby" by Eddie Arnold. I have been a lifelong resident of this town and after watching this video and seeing how the town was back in the day, it really makes me want to help the folks in downtown Texarkana with their preservation efforts.
Without going into too much detail, the look of the buildings back in the day to some of the current scenes of these same buildings make me sad. I wish there had been a better preservation of some of these historical places. However, graciously some of these buildings have been preserved and look better in their current form.
Check out the video and see how many of these famous Texarkana Landmarks you know and can name.
