Sesquicentennial (TXK150) Events

Txk Sesqui logo_horizontal.png

In 1873 the Texas and Pacific Railroad and the Cairo Fulton Railroad were looking to connect and expand services across the Texas and Arkansas state line, and on December 8th of that year the railroad had the first sale of City Lots in Texarkana.  This marks the founding of our great twin cities!  2023 is the 150th year since the first transaction of the property was made in Texarkana, USA and we will spend the year celebrating the history, art, music culture, and pride of Texarkana!  Below is a list of events that is sponsored by the TXK150 Committee.  Stay tuned for more updates all throughout 2023!
