There is really something for everyone

Great atmosphere. People are happy and friendly. Easy to get to. It reminds me of the small towns of the 50's. Tiny but fun petting area.

Lovely place for a stroll. Chestnut square is hopping on Saturday mornings with the Farmers Market and lots of fresh local produce and products. Great place for a reception too, lovely space.

The Farmers Market on Saturday mornings is a must do. The foods and crafts the people bring in is so nice and very affordable. There's also a horse carriage ride you can take around the square.

Folks living in McKinney on the west side of 75 often miss this gem on the east side of McKinney right off of Highway 5. McKinney has done a great job of preserving a little village made up of residences, a store, church, and other buildings from early McKinney days.

Love going every week. The vendors are so friendly. The produce is far superior to grocery store. The selection is fun-produce, cheese, meat, sweets, wine, flower and herbs and more.

Not only is this a great place to walk around and view nicely restored buildings, but it is an absolutely awesome place to take Senior photos. The old buildings, the flowers and trees make a great background for picture taking. The visitor center is nice and clean and the docent is very friendly and informative. It's a quaint small area...

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.
