We love our town. It's a really nice place, and we have always enjoyed our downtown area. The downtown is always hosting fun, free events, and the shops and restaurants are more then enjoyable. Part of the downtown is a little place called Chestnut Square. It's and adorable square of old, historical houses and a chapel. The houses are not lived in like many historical markers are, but they are available for weddings and daily tours. In the center of the square there are a courtyard about half of it is bricked and the other half is not. On Saturday mornings from 8 am until noon they host an amazing Farmers Market of local produce, honey, meats, breads, etc. And during the market hours there is almost always a blue grass or folk band playing on the porch of one of the houses. It is one of my most favorite things about McKinney. Yesterday, I snapped a few pictures to share. Next time we go I will try to get some pictures of the houses and layout.
