2012 Holiday Tour of Homes
Saturday & Sunday, December 1 & 2, 2012
Tour Hours: Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Sunday 12:00 - 5:00 p.m.
The first weekend of December has been The Heritage Guild of Collin County Holiday Tour of Homes since 1973! The tradition of opening historic homes for a public tour began in 1973 when our founders first opened their homes to raise money to purchase the Dulaney House and cottage and the grounds that eventually became Chestnut Square.
Every year five or six homes and historic structures are decorated for Christmas and opened for the tour. The proceeds from ticket sales and an annual raffle are a major component to the ongoing operation of Chestnut Square. Take a peek at the 2007 tour homes, the 2008 tour homes, the 2009 tour homes, and the 2010 tour homes.
Tickets are $20.
Tickets may be purchased at the following locations:
The Dulaney House at Chestnut Square (315 S. Chestnut St..)
Little Red Hen
Market Street in McKinney
The Antique House
McKinney Performing Arts Center
Any of the homes on the tour
Tickets may be purchased online and will be mailed out up until 11/27/12. Tickets purchased online after 11/27/2012 may be picked up at Will Call at The Dulaney House at 315 S. Chestnut St., McKinney, TX 75069 during the tour.
