The Ace of Clubs House was built in 1885 at the height of the Victorian period and has an unusual floor plan, featuring three octagonal rooms at one end and a long rectangular room at the other. It was a private residence for 100 years, owned by three different families before Miss Olivia, the last resident, left it to the Texarkana Museums System in 1985.

The Ace of Clubs House offers guided tours Tuesday through Sunday and typically hosts special events such as workshops, lectures and other activities on the third Saturday of the month. The Ace of Clubs House is located at 420 Pine St.
