A charming view of Texas 100 years ago. Worth the stop but, in our view, not worth a detour. Other than tour days, just a walk-by of wonderful old buildings

Took the family today for the Smithsonian Free museum day. It was a little hard to find parking as there was a car show going on next to the square. Once we made our way in I was pleasantly surprised to find a Saturday Farmers market scattered all throughout the place. We visited several of the historic buildings and learned... More

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

Chestnut village is one of my favorite places in McKinney. It is not as big as some other historic villages, however that doesn't make it any less charming. 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...

A dedicated group of knowledgeable volunteers makes a visit to the Chestnut Square Historical Village a real treat. Old homes and bushiness have been preserved and filled with the tools and utensils of the day. 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
