A person who starts walking at the east end of the hallway on the third floor of this building—the U.S. Post Office and Federal Courthouse in Texarkana (Miller County)—will reach Texas by the west end. The building, which was built in 1933, straddles the Texas-Arkansas state line. As a result, it is the only federal building in the nation that stands in two states and is also the only courthouse located in two judicial districts. The front of the building is a popular tourist stop.
