well, there's the old courthouse right on the downtown historic square in McKinney which is now a cultural center... and really well placed and well run. Then there is the awesome new county seat on the far north side of McKinney. They do a good job from the couple times I've been there. At night though, it's not well lit.... More

I work for the county and visit the courthouse on a regular basis. I have found the menu to be varied and the offerings to my liking. They offer soup and salad everyday, as well as grill items for breakfast and lunch items. The chicken fried steak is good and vegetables taste fresh. I don't like everything, but to be... More

The MPAC is beautiful and the Courthouse is as well, but the seating is so uncomfortable that it makes it difficult to sit through a show. They rent cushions, so it's obvious they are needed. I know they tried to stay true to the original seating and "look", but just pad the seats for heaven sake. The Square is wonderful... More

I love old Texas county courthouses. This one has had a big "updating" that makes the inside feel modern and not like an historic building. It's run by a non-government group, and feels more like a new building inside. So, I appreciate that the exterior is preserved, but miss the authentic interior feeling.

The staff at the MPAC (McKinney Performing Arts Center), located in the McKinney Courthouse is fabulous. Amy and the others are friendly and accommodating, and they have a great venue to offer for all sorts of events - wedding, galas, community activities, church services, etc. Would highly recommend them if the venue accommodates your party size.

They are talking about the old courthouse which is a beauty , the old one has class. Their lots of shops and places in the area to do in the oid downtown, the court house is history and tells one of the other age of justice. It is worth seeiing as they do not make them like this any more... More

A little bit of Victorian England in the middle of McKinney! Carolers, stores decorated, folks in costume, nice facilities. Parking can be dodgey, be prepared to walk in to the square.
