“six historic homes from late 1800s”
Chestnut Square Historic Village is a collection of six historic homes, a replica of a one-room school house, chapel and store on 2.5 acres just south of the downtown McKinney square. The grounds also include a blacksmith shop, smoke house, and beautiful chapel and reception gardens. The buildings include period artifacts showing how people lived in Collin County from 1854-1920. Join us on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. for a tour of the buildings at Chestnut Square. Learn about the homes and the families that lived in them from 1854 – 1920. On the second and fourth Saturday of each month at 11:00 a.m. take a trolley tour through McKinney's Historic District. Our knowledgeable docents will share McKinney's history and beautiful architecture from the comfort of the historic trolley. Private tours are also available by reservation. Pair a Chestnut Square tour, trolley tour or historic speaker with a tea in our beautiful Dulaney House or Bevel Reception House. Want something spookier? We've got Ghost Tours for you! The Ghostly Hauntings of Chestnut Square tour is available every third Saturday at 8:00 p.m. This two-hour behind the scenes, lantern lit tour of Chestnut Square tells the haunted history of each house.
The Village is a great place to escape. Peaceful and serene surroundings just a stone's throw from historic downtown McKinney. The Farmers Market on Saturday mornings is a great time during the Spring and Summer.
