Chestnut Square Historic Village is located in McKinney, Texas which is about 50 minutes north of downtown Dallas, Texas.

The 10 historic buildings span the time period between 1854 to 1930.
I believe I only have photos of 7 of the buildings.
They tell the story of early American life in North Texas.

I included both sides of the Dixie Store because I like gardens/plants they have on each side.

Yes, you can get married in this chapel and have your reception in one of the houses or have an outdoor wedding in the garden area.

There is a bell up in the tower of the chapel that they will ring as soon as you are married!

This is where you can have your outdoor wedding vow ceremony.


In Texas, I would only have an outdoor wedding in March or April ---never the summer!!
But this past spring it rained almost every weekend, so a lot of weddings had to be moved indoors!

I went to take photos and look at this historic village because my daughter is engaged and she is looking for a wedding venue.
She didn't ever look at this venue with me and she has other ideas of where she wants to hold her wedding, but I still had fun visiting and take photos.
I enjoy seeing historic villages like this.


Have a Blessed Day!

I really enjoyed seeing this walk so much history and great to see them all so well looked after

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :)

I see that some of these historical buildings are used as stores or some similar businesses. Are any of them still used as houses?

I'm just asking as here it's very normal to use old houses to live. They are charming and have something special about them.

Lovely photos and a great wednesday walk! :)

Have a nice start of the week!

One of them is used for wedding receptions and/or parties. You pay to use it. Also the chapel can be used for weddings. Thank you, you too!

Great shots of the historic houses. They are well kept and the gardens and walks are lovely. Love the colors in the last photo.

Good to see historic homes so well kept :-)

Those houses are quite lovely! It does look like a lovely wedding venue. Good luck with the wedding plans!

Great shots and a nice walk to the historic homes, thanks for sharing with us!

Oh, my goodness, thank you very much @curie!

I loved the images, the structure of the house is a beauty! Greetings from Venezuela ♡

Hello! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Totally beautiful, @violetmed!
The space looks wonderful for a wedding, really. I hope your daughter matches you in this option.

Beautiful pictures. One of the merits of the American culture is their fascination and commitment with history and the preservation of historical sites.
I love the architecture, the American touches and the work and care given to the memory of places, people and events that played an important role in the history of the nation.
Hopefuly young Americans will value this as much as it deserves.

Yes, I hope they will value the preservation!

Very impressive wooden old houses! They are in very good condition! Just imagine horses, cowboys and carriages! It’s like travel back through time.

Beautiful gardens too! Never imagine the old Texas houses to be so nice!

Well, they have been repainted and maybe even some rotten wood might have been replaced. Also they usually have to put on new roofs. The historic organizations in each city raise money to pay for this. Some of the houses have also been moved to this location from other parts of the city.

That’s very good effort by lots of people who realized the value of historical houses! History has become an out-of-date subject for youngsters nowadays! They are going for robotic culture!

Those house are very beautiful and amazing. I am feeling happy to know about historic village. I will try to visit this village. Thanks for your sharing
