2. Chestnut Square Historic Park
A couple of blocks south of McKinney’s downtown, Chestnut Square transports you back to McKinney’s earliest days. You’ll get to see how the town’s communities worked and played when you explore the ten preserved buildings that date between 1854 an 1930. Here there’s a chapel, a school house, a boarding house, a general store and an assortment of homes. Cheerfully helping to bring these buildings to life are volunteers who dress up in historic costume and demonstrate skills needed to get by in 19th-century McKinney.
