Wonderful preservation!

Lovely park. A great asset to the town. Their living history programs are not to be missed! Be sure to stop and visit Collin and McKinney while you're there.

My ladies' group had our end of the year gathering g at Chestnut Square in May. They provided a nice lunch in a private room in one of the historical homes and a tour of all of the open buildings. It was fun and educational.

Each year, the Chestnut Square Historic area has a special time in October where you can visit and find out about ghosts who have appeared in some of the historic homes. Very enlightening. You find about the history of the people and their lives.

Every Saturday we load up the family and head to the Farmer's Market at Chestnut Square. Make sure you visit the Country store and tour the homes on the premise if you haven't been there before. Your kids will love watching the working Blacksmith and the goats on the premise and bring plenty of reusable grocery bags to fill with... More

Best to go on a Saturday morning during Farmer's Market season. A lot going on. Also attended a wedding there in February 2013 in the chapel. Was nice but reception had to be inside due to rain. Still fun. Also have done the Ghost Tour.

Go back and see what "used to be", how people lived in different eras of McKinney. Very interesting to see houses from different times side by side. Saturday mornings during spring through fall finds a vibrant farmers market nestled among the historical homes.

It is a fun place to visit and has very good lo.cal produce. The old buildings are closed during the farmers market, but open during the week and worth a visit as... More

The vendors or friendly and will explain their products and there is usually live music. Don't miss a quick visit to the two goats in the pen at the... More
