Hello there and welcome to this UCPlaces Where to Live Tour of Texarkana, Texas. My name is Shelly and I’ll be showing you around this amazing city. Texarkana is a two-county region with Texarkana, Texas on one side and Texarkana, Arkansas on the other. There are a few stories that explain where the name comes from. One says it was named after a Red River Steamboat. Another legend states that the name came from a cocktail called “Texarkana Bitters.” Yet another story is that a railroad surveyor just made up the name. Who knows, and it probably doesn’t matter. Let’s go check this place out for ourselves. Are you ready? Great! Oh, before I forget - We will be ending the tour at a fun park so you may want to pick up some lunch to eat there! Ok, Meet me right in front of the 1894 Gallery and City Market on 105 Olive Street. Your navigation will guide you in. See you soon!

Like most conquering overlords, the Spanish made short work of destroying the culture of the highly advanced civilizations of southern Mexico. The Aztecs and Mayans were no match for the steel and germs brought by the Europeans and were soon crushed under their boots as a worthless, inferior race. That stigma was still around and growing as the Anglos started to outnumber Hispanics in the new country and later state of Texas. In 1975, Jesse Trevino, who we will talk about later, painted a mural at Our Lady of the Lake University that would set the tone for many of the murals you will see today. The center of La Historia Chicana is a large Mexican pyramid, a reminder of the proud historical culture from which they had descended. Many of the murals you will see today refer to this culture. Currently in San Antonio that Hispanic influences growing. From pioneers like Henry B Gonzalez and Henry Cisneros to current political superstars Juan and Julian Castro the stigmas and stereotypes of the past are slowly fading. On this tour you will see a grassroots effort to raise awareness of the importance of culture and family in this predominantly Hispanic area at the same time you will see some pretty good art created by people that live in this neighborhood. This will be a special tour you will remember
