Palestine High School   
Arial View of the west side of Palestine.  Center is the High School (now the location of the new Grade School), the lot to it's right is where the current library sits.  Grand Prairie Street is on the right hand heading east, LaMotte is on the left.  Harrison Street is in the middle of the field.  No highway to Robinson can be seen.  Notice the waterline where there was flooding in the upper left corner.
