Palestine, Texas

Come For The Dogwoods, Stay For The Hospitality

Historic homes, magnolias, and dogwoods impart a gracious Southern sensibility to this Texas Main Street city. In addition to the annual Dogwood Trails Festival, visitors find more than 1,300 historic homes and buildings, many within two National Register Historic Districts that can be viewed on a driving tour. The conductor sounds the “all aboard” for the steam train at the Texas State Railroad depot. Boarding for round trip excursions takes place at depots in Palestine and Rusk. Events include the Texas Dogwoods Trail in March, the Polar Express Train ride in November/December, The Taste of New Orleans: Mardi Gras Celebration in February, and the 1836 Chuckwagon Race on Texas Independence Day.
