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

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

Chestnut Square Historic Village is a collection of homes circa 1854 until 1920. Each home is furnished with period furniture, some of which belonged to the occupants of the homes. The oldest house is the Ferris House which was built in 1854 and moved to the property. They also host weddings and wedding receptions. Each Saturday morning the McKinney Farmer's... More

We've been to the Saturday morning Farmer's Market and it gets very busy. Get there by or before 9 AM for the best selection of produce and baked goods. Vendors run out of the choice selections quick! Also a good place to bring your well-behaved pets. There is no fee for going to the Farmer's Market, just what you buy.... More

I have only been here for the Farmer's Market but it was a great experience. It is set outside between the charming historical houses which really added to the ambiance. Everyone there was very welcoming and generous with samples from wine to beef jerky to salsa and everything in between. I was disappointing that I had not brought more cash... More
