History

Before 1890, Texarkana was the county seat of Bowie County. Then an election decided on a more central location for a courthouse. The site was chosen, and the town of Boston was created at the site. In 1986 a new courthouse was built in New Boston, which is just north of Boston, which remains the official county seat.
