    McKinney has preserved a number of structures which comprise historic Chestnut Square Village. Taking your family on a guided tour would make for an interesting history lesson!

    A turn of the century chapel, a lodging place once know as the "Two Bit" Taylor Inn (1864), a former grocery store (1918), schoolhouse (first free school in Collin County) and several residences spanning 1854-1918 are available for tours on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays at 11 am.

    Annual events such as Champagne & Chocolate--a benefit concert/auction and the Holiday Tour of Homes are held to fund the historic district. Heritage Guild of Collin County oversees Chestnut Square.

    Admission for adults is $5; children $3. A family rate is available. This historic outdoor museum is not opened on Sunday. Hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 11 am.
