We stopped to charge up and took the opportunity to visit downtown. The name of the city is a combination derived from TEXas, ARKanas and LouisANA. The City straddles two states as the state line of Texas and Arkansas run the the middle of the court house.

The Texas part is a dry city and all the liquor stores are on the Arkansas side. The downtown seemed ( albeit it was a Sunday) barren and depressed and the City was hit hard by the opium crisis and ranks in the top 10 affected cities.
