Reasonable real estate! Finding a rent to own home in this community is a real bargain. In the city center, properties are less expensive on average than 92 percent of other Texas neighborhoods and 96 percent of neighborhoods nationwide. Consider property near pleasant Reagan Park or pretty Spring Park Lake.
Available vacancies! Not only are homes in the area reasonably priced, but vacant homes and apartments are relatively easy to find, with an average vacancy rate of 28 percent. To be close to the action, choose from medium sized to small single family homes and apartments in the heart of town. For a bit more space, enjoy a neighborhood with plenty of room between single family homes and mobile homes like Cayuga Bethel, which is close to picturesque areas like Gus Engeling Wildlife Management Area.
Historic charm! Palestine boasts some 1,800 historic sites with many landmark properties in the Main Street District. It's also the home of the Texas State Railroad. The Texas Railroad Society Museum offers model trains, train artifacts and memorabilia, and interactive exhibits. All aboard!
Unique and world famous architecture! Palestine is home to the Philip Beesley Hylozoic Series, a world-famous responsive architecture exhibit created from plant-like elements that sense visitors and respond with movement. See the future of architecture and technology in the Palestine Mall.
Fantastic community events! The annual Dogwood Classic Rodeo is held in April at the Anderson County Livestock Pavilion. If roping and riding isn't your thing, every October the town hosts the Hot Pepper Festival with BBQ and chili cook-offs, live music, arts and crafts, and of course, a pepper eating contest -- some like it hot.
Great musical events! Five times a year, Palestine serves up the fine sounds of the Dogwood Jamboree, a series of Branson-style country music concerts. But that's not the only entertainment option; classic cinema is held at Reagan Park the first Saturday of every month, free.
Fun for golfers! Pine Dunes Golf Course made the Texas number one spot for best courses from 2010 to 2012. Elkhart Golf Course is another 18 hole course with a grand east Texas reputation.
