…And we like free.
We stumbled across a nice little free gem while here in Texarkana, TX.
Well, stumbled on it with the help of the brochure rack at Texas Tourist Information Center.
The gem? The Four States Auto Museum in the historic downtown district of Texarkana. And yes, admission is Free. All they ask is that you sign the guest book.
Cars of various makes and ages, vintage gas pumps, dealer signs, tools and more are thoughtfully laid out in the old building that once housed a carriage maker and we enjoyed chatting with the two gentlemen who were overseeing it that day. Hope you enjoy the photos below.
If you’re in the area, you’ll want to stop by. Even if you’re not a car nut, this brief dip into automotive history is worth a stop.
