Here the state line for Texas and Arkansas runs right through the middle of the Post Office and County Court House. I don't see a problem with the post office but if you commit a crime in Arkansas and the court house is in Texas, can they do that? Maybe there are two halves to the court room. It was a Saturday so I wasn't able to go in and check it out. I would have stepped back into the middle of the street to get the entire building in the photo but I was concerned that if I got hit by a car and landed in a different jurisdiction from where I had parked...well I don't know how that would be dealt with.
Here I am loitering in two states at the same time.
There weren't any cops around. It was a Saturday remember.
Across from the Court House/Post Office was this monument to the Confederacy. For the first time I felt I was truly in the South. I think the monument stood in Texas unless the state line made a jog to the west as it crossed the street.
The inscription reads:
To Our Loyal Confederates
"O great Confederate mothers we would paint your names on monuments, that men may read them as the years go by and tribute pay to you, who bore and nurtured hero-sons and gave them solace on that darkest day when they came home, with broken swords and guns!"
