    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a beautifully restored 7,000 sqft historic home which was built in 1900. At the time it was the centre for social, business, art and literary activities. The home was built by Stephen D. Heard and his wife Lillie and the moved in with their 18 year old son Fred and 16 year old daughter Katie. Stephen Heard was co-owner of JS & SD Heard Mercantile which was in downtown McKinney. It provided groceries, farm implements, saddles and other basic necessities for more than 30 years. Stephen along with his brother John also owned cotton and flour mills, real estate and insurance businesses. The home was bequeathed by Kathryn Heard Craig in 1970 to the community.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chestnut Square is a collection of seven houses and other structures dating back to the 1850s. The buildings are the Taylor House, Dulaney Cottage, Johnson House, the Chapel, Dixie's Store, the Faires House and Schoolroom - (I'll try to put pictures of them each in a travelogues sometime.) The buildings are furnished as they would have been in the 1800's and early 1900's. Tours begin at the visitors center on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 11a.m.
