General

Yes, we ask that you clean up after it, just as you would if you were on anyone else’s private property.

As the grounds are open, outdoor photography is permitted. Please remember that these are historic structures, and furniture, artifacts or décor are for display only. Many of the items on our porches are not stable for use.

We also ask that you be respectful of private events, (we host approximately 100 weddings each year), fundraisers or dinners, and of the property itself. Donations of any kind help us preserve and maintain our historic village. Should you wish to leave a donation, there is a locked box on our Visitors Center door. They are appreciated!

Membership options are available on our website at www.chestnutsquare.org, as well as a link for donations.

No, Chestnut Square Historic Village is privately owned and operated by the Heritage Guild of Collin County, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We are supported through program revenues, special events, grants, membership dues and donations.

The buildings are open for guided tours on Thursdays and Saturdays at 11am. Otherwise, an audio tour is available 24/7 with a QR Code reader app on a phone. Instructions are at each building.

The buildings are over or approaching 100 years old, and house our collection of artifacts, so they are not open for unaccompanied guests. Our Visitors Center is open Tuesday – Friday, 9am-3pm, and Saturdays during Farmers Market.
