Museum
“The Lindsay Railroad Museum has photographic and art displays that cover Texarkana’s 138-year history. Texarkana was founded by the Texas & Pacific Railroad and the Cairo & Fulton Railroad in the winter of 1873-74. In time, Texarkana became the regional hub of nine railroad systems including the Texas & Pacific, Kansas City Southern, and Missouri Pacific. The museum also includes first-person stories about working for the railroads and memorabilia such as uniforms, patches, badges and flags. We have a theater in which to watch films about railroads and a “hands-on” section for children to ring the bells, toot the horns, and experience the thrill of train travel. Come and enjoy the glory days of Texarkana’s railroads!”
