History is alive and well in McKinney, Texas, and the Chestnut Square Historic Village gets you an amazing opportunity to step back in time and experience it today. This group of six houses, a chapel, a schoolhouse, and the shop lie conveniently near the town center square. On less than three acres, you can also explore the workings of a historical blacksmith, reception house, and stroll through glorious, old-time gardens filled with beautiful flowers and luscious foliage. The idea for this historic village began in 1973. Today, it is beautifully preserved as a type of time capsule that allows visitors to imagine themselves living all those years ago.

Not only can you walk through the different buildings and learn about how life was so very long ago, but the Chestnut Square Historic Village also offers unique tours and special events throughout the year. The farmers market open year-round is one of the major attractions in this area. You will find a wide variety of produce from local farms and gardens, handcrafted goods, and other products of interest. Come for the live music and pony rides or simply pick up some fresh berries and goat milk soap. Take a tour with the family or school group given by an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Both public and private options are available including a unique opportunity to ride the trolley around town. You can even book the 1908 white chapel for your wedding celebration.

Preserved and lovingly cared for by the Heritage Guild of Collin County, the Chestnut Square Historic Village always has something more to offer the public. Besides the farmers market, the scheduled events draw more interest all the time. These family-friendly experiences cover everything from making soaps to drawing flowers, experiencing historical music, to blacksmithing demonstrations. Kids can sign up for the Prairie Adventure Camp in the summertime. Attend the Ice Cream Crank Off competition for National Ice Cream Day, enjoy a ghostly hunting’s tour for Halloween, and spectacular Christmas time events too.
