View Full Version : Buildings that Straddle Borders
Jan 26, 2009, 1:08 AM
Do you know of or have pictures of buildings that straddle a border?
One I can think of off the top of my head is the post office in Texarkana, Texas and Arkansas.

Yeah, for you it will. If it was anyone else... no.

there's a pub/restaurant in quebec & vermont where the bar is on the quebec side but I don't remember any more than that.
edit: could be derby line, vt & stanstead, que or norton, vt & stanhope, que. in derby line the Haskell Free Library and Opera House (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haskell_Free_Library_and_Opera_House) was deliberately built on the border so that everyone can use it, not just people on one side

Also in Texarkana (my home town): the Bi-State Criminal Justice Center and Union Station:
Special legislation had to be passed by both Texas and Arkansas to allow the police officers to have jurisdiction thoughout the entire Criminal Justice building.
There's also the Cal-Neva hotel in Lake Tahoe, where the state line is painted on the bottom of the swimming pool.

I know there are some (at least one) joint customs buildings on the Canada US border that are built right on the border. They are located at smaller crossings.
They require two sets of contractors to build them, one for the Canadian side, and one for the US side.
