Built in the 1920s, the Texarkana Municipal Auditorium saw its heyday in the mid-twentieth century. It was the primary stop along the Louisiana Hayride Circuit, which had heavy influence on the formation of modern day rock & roll and country music. The auditorium is now one of the most historical buildings in Texarkana and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 2004.
Visit the Municipal Auditorium to hear more about the architecture and the history of the building. Before you leave, be sure to take a stroll through the Walk of Fame Park next door and read about the artists who’ve played in the auditorium like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis!
