Palestine was named for Palestine, Illinois, by Daniel Parker. Palestine is a relatively small town located on the Piney Woods equidistant from the major airport cities of Dallas, Houston and Shreveport and is notable for its natural beauty characterized by a magnificent dogwood floral blooming season, for 1,800 historical sites on the National Register of Historic Places and is the western terminus of the Texas State Railroad, a steam and diesel railroad museum operating between Palestine and Rusk. The largest employer is the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, which employs more than 3,900. Another 1,600 work at two Wal-Mart distribution centers. Other significant employers include a thriving medical and healthcare sector that tends to the large population of retirees. Palestine entered the news in February 2003, as one of the East Texas towns that received much of the debris from the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, where seven astronauts were killed. Palestine is also home to the NASA Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility (renamed after the shuttle crash), which has flown 1,700 high-altitude balloons for universities and research agencies.
