  2. REFORM SYNAGOGUES
Corsicana is a city in Navarro County, Texas, United States. It is located on Interstate 45 some fifty-five miles south of downtown Dallas. The population was 24,485 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Navarro County . Corsicana is located at 32°5′33″N 96°28′10″W / 32.0925°N 96.46944°W / 32.0925; -96.46944 (32.092480, -96.469407) .

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 21.7 square miles (56 km2), of which, 20.7 square miles (54 km2) of it is land and 1.0 square mile (2.6 km2) of it is water. The total area is 4.42% water.

Corsicana is home to the Lake Halbert dam and recreational park, and is less than fifteen miles from Richland Chambers Reservoir, with recreational fishing, public boat ramps, and 330 miles of treed and green shorelines. Richland Chambers Reservoir is the third-largest lake by surface area and the eighth-largest reservoir by water volume in Texas.

Corsicana is best known as the home of the Collin Street Bakery, which has been making fruitcakes since 1896. Oil City Iron Works, Inc., today a ductile and gray iron foundry, was started in 1866 to make parts for the owner's cotton gin. Wolf Brand Chili, a national brand named for the owner's pet wolf, Kaiser Bill, started in 1895 as a downtown by-the-bowl lunch wagon.

Today's economy shows little reliance on oil and gas. Major employers include Russell Stover Candies and Collin Street Bakery, Guardian Industries (glass), Corsicana Bedding, the Kohl's and Home Depot distribution centers, Navarro Regional hospital (160+ beds), Trinity/Mother Francis Health System, and the Texas State Home.  There are several 24/7 pharmacies, grocery stores, and chain department stores scattered about the town. College Park Mall is an enclosed shopping mall which primarily houses a Beall's clothing store. Additionally, a 24-hour Wal-Mart Supercenter can be found on the southwestern edge of the town.

Corsicana was also the home of the coin-arcade and video game company, Tradewest, founded in 1986. Tradewest was known for such Nintendo Entertainment System classics as Double Dragon and Battletoads. Tradewest later became Williams Entertainment (known for the Mortal Kombat series) in 1994, then Midway Home Entertainment after an acquisition from WMS Industries. The Corsicana offices were closed by Midway in late 2002.
