STATE LINE, TEXAS. State Line is on the Texas-New Mexico border and U.S. Highway 62/180 eighteen miles northeast of Pine Springs in north central Culberson County. In 1970 the population was first estimated, and it remained at the same level-eighteen-through the late 1980s. In 1990 the community did not appear on maps of the area, but a State Line Saloon was at the site. The population was eighteen in 2000.
