Three States is a small community located on State Highway 77 about nine miles southeast of Atlanta on the eastern border of Cass County. The town sits at the conjunction of the Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana borders, which explains the origin of its name. Early development probably came about as a result of the oil boom in the area in the 1920s, and in the 1930s county maps showed rows of dwellings and several businesses along the highway. In the latter half of the twentieth century the town consisted of housing on the Texas side and a few small businesses on the Arkansas and Louisiana sides. No population estimates were available until 2000 when the census recorded forty-five residents.
