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

If you're in the area and like to look at historic architecture and browse antique shops then Chestnut Square Historic Village is a must-see place for you. Old homes, old churches, old buildings. They also have a lot of places to eat and they are trying to bring an "artsy" vibe to the area as well.

Chestnut Square was a lot of fun and the old homes are amazing! The historic church onsite sees a ton of weddings each year.

We have photographed several weddings here, and each time the staff and the venue are gracious and beautiful. This is such a gem of a place for a wedding, vintage and charming.

Great way for anyone to experience life as it used to be. Buildings are well-kep, preserved and decorated as if you have stepped back in time!
