Texas, Arkansas: Texarkana twins invited to photo shoot

Texarkana News

TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) — Twins and other twosomes have been invited to dress alike and take part in a “twice as nice” photoshoot meant to promote both Southern cities named Texarkana.

It’s an effort by Texarkana, Texas, and neighboring Texarkana, Arkansas, to encourage downtown development through historic preservation.

Officials with nonprofit Main Street Texarkana, made up of citizens from both states, say locals are encouraged to show up at noon Wednesday in front of the downtown courthouse and post office. The federal building, at 500 N. State Line Ave., is located in both states.

The area includes Photographer’s Island, where people are encouraged to snap images on the shared state line marked with a red, white and blue sign.

Members of the Texarkana Twins baseball team are also participating.
