Hi,
We'll be coming through your town in a few days and wondered if there might be anything interesting to do there. Or could you suggest anything nearby? Thanx.

Five miles west of Palestine on Texas 287 is the National Scientific Balloon Facility, the launching site for balloons reaching high altitudes. Visitors are welcome, but you should call ahead for reservations.

To continue your Sunday Drive beyond Palestine, turn north on Texas 155, but before you leave the city limits, turn to the left on Link Road and make a drive through Davey Dogwood Park, a spectacular area during the spring when the dogwoods are in bloom. The park's main road winds five miles through the 400-acre park.

Return to 155 and continue north to its intersection with Farm Road 321. Near the intersection is a state historical marker noting the importance of two Anderson County towns, Plenitude and Mound Prairie, during the Civil War. Both settlements, now ghost towns, made rifles, grist mills and cotton gins used in the Confederate war effort.

At the highway intersection, turn the east toward Montalba community, which lies at the intersection of 321 and Texas 19. The town's distinctive name comes from a nearby mountain.

From Montalba, continue in a western direction on 321 to Tennessee Colony.

From Tennessee Colony, head south on Farm Road 645 To Tucker, named for an early settler known as Colonel Tucker.
