Victory City is a small community located just north of Interstate 30 about eleven miles west of Texarkana in east central Bowie County. The town developed in the early 1940s along the Texas and Pacific Railway and U.S. highway 82 as a result of construction of the Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant. Victory City, platted at the entrance of the ammunition plant, was so named to reflect the patriotic sentiment regarding World War II. The community, which consisted of a few businesses and many homes, continued to exist in the years following the war, and many residents worked at the plant. The first census figures available recorded a population of 250 in 2000. Victory City Cemetery was located in the nearby town of Hooks.
