Palestine was a small town in Virginia, near Elizabeth. In the early 2070s, Palestine was hit by a tornado.
In 2097, Beckie Royer visited the fish hatchery there. Later, when Ohio released a mutated measles virus into Virginia, every city was quarantined and a no-travel order was put in place. Myrtle Bentley and Ethel Snodgrass were not permitted to enter the town and shop, much to their disgust.
