Four Corners, otherwise known as Frog Hollow, was a tiny speck on the landscape on the Pease River and had only a gas station, a general mercantile store, a gin house and an icehouse. As the town was regularly flooded out after heavy rains, the construction for State Highway 70 bypassed Four Corners, so it was a sleepy town at first but not anymore! Here's a little more info about the different neighborhoods in town.
Four Corners Visitor Center: The Four Corners is one of the most unique landmarks in the world! This is the only place in the United States where four states intersect - Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. Visitors can see the four states laid out at the visitor's center where the four states meet. The Navajo venders sell hand-made jewelry and crafts and welcome all visitors.
Ice Barn: This is the favorite place for school kids and kids of all ages. The snow cone stand brings back memories of the past but is also the picture of what is to come. You'll have a good chance of finding an apartment for rent around these parts. Of course this is great for the people living here as they no longer have to do their grocery shopping in Houston or Rosenberg. They now have the pleasure of local shops. Sure cuts down on the gas costs!
