We took the tour offered at Christmas. We found it difficult to find all of the homes on the tour. Because of that we were pressed for time. The Village offers several interesting buildings to explore. We were disappointed that some of them were not open.

If you are looking for historic, if you are looking for quaint, if you are looking for a great farmers market then Chestnut Square is a good place. The area is family friendly the vendors are kind the quality of the fare is very good - its worth a peek... but its very small so plan other things to do.

Visit the historical homes and just enjoy the feel of history as you walk around. Homes are not open all the time but still enjoyable to see them from the outside.

This is a good place to visit when in McKinney. It is located just south of the Historic Downtown Square. The old preserved structures are configured in a square. This is a popular location for weddings. During the summer months there is a farmers market each Saturday morning from 8 am to noon.

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
