A fun way to spend a Saturday morn. Lots of great booths and exhibitors - honey, beef jerky, cheese, flavored nuts, smoothies, juicy peaches and fruit, There was an ice cream event the weekend we were there - yum! Historic home was an interesting tour.

While everything is higher priced than in local food stores, a lot of very unique options that would be hard to find elsewhere. Interesting way to spend a hour or more.

We wandered into Chestnut Square near the end of our month's trip to Texas with the sole intention of taking a few photos of the old houses. However, we bumped into a lady who asked us if we were there for the tour. Why not we thought. The cost was $12 for the pair of us - we got one... More

We have been there many times for different reasons - take out of town guests, professional photosessions etc... and have always had a fantastic time discovering new nooks and cranies. The farmers...

Volunteer guides are on hand to explain the history of the buildings, the area and the various implements found in the buildings. Well worth a... More

I have been to Chestnut Square Historic Village several times and each time I learn more. Love the history behind each of the homes, church, & general store. Well worth the nominal admissions charge and the time.

I love this step back in time open air market. Depending upon the season it is open on Saturdays. Local farmers and craftsmen display their products. Organically raised foods, homemade soaps, local honey, hand quilted linens and much more. It's a very inviting, family environment with lots to see and explore. The only downside is that, because it is an... More
