I had to call 4 times before I got to make a reservation and then the a lady who answered the phone finally made the reservation herself since the person in charge of reservations was not there. It was a very interesting experience. The guide was very knowledgable and a good story teller. I told several friends and now they want to join Groupon and visit Chestnut Square to do the ghost walk.

We had a great time, the teenagers enjoyed thinking about ghosts, I loved seeing the historic homes.

I think they should not call this tour the "Ghostly Hauntings" (or whatever it is that they call it). I think they would get more participation if they just called it a night time history tour, which is what it was in my eyes.Very interesting tour though!

The tour guide did a fantastic job and was entertaining! It was also great that we had access to all areas of the houses.

The wedding the night of the haunted tour is distracting.

Just regarding the home tour: shuttle service should be provided as I believe it has been in years past.

It was great to see all the pretty houses. Wish more history would have been told to us while we were there. that's what drew me to buy the tickets.

From Our Editors

McKinney, Texas’s Chestnut Square Historic Village recreates life from 1850-1930 on a campus that features six historic houses, a one-room schoolhouse, a chapel, and a general store. The surrounding buildings also include a blacksmith shop, a smoke house, and a chapel, all filled with period artifacts from the 19th century. Visit during a Living History Day to see costumed actors farming, baking, embroidering cushions, or tending to the old-fashioned gardens. Visitors can even step inside the old schoolhouse for a lesson on the region’s history or argue in favor of putting James A. Garfield on every piece of U.S. currency.

For a more in-depth look at the square, follow a guide on a daytime tour, which delves into the buildings’ pasts. On the Village’s haunted tours, you can try to catch a glimpse of an apparition with a lantern light. Patrons can get an additional taste of the past at the weekly farmers market, which showcases fresh vegetables and is visited by Chester the Cat, the square’s resident feline who normally hangs out at Dixie’s Store.
