"Drive Across Texas" finds history at JK Wadley House in Texarkana, Arkansas

The traveling team of Drive Across Texas ventured into the state of Arkansas while staying in the downstairs apartment of the JK Wadley House in Texarkana, Arkansas.


Most people in Texarkana know the famous home, because of its proximity to Beech Street First Baptist Church and Wadley Hospital.

The team was impressed to learn that JK Wadley commissioned the first golf cart and his relationship with the Hilton family from the famous hotel chain.

Wendy Johnson (of the Drive Across Texas crew) also loved the amenities provided by the owners of the home during their visit to the Twin Cities.

The JK Wadley House even has its own Wikipedia page (click here).

You will want to watch the video have an inside peek at the home.
