Fill Our Bucket

This will help us maintain Collin County’s heritage for today and for future generations.

Our mission: Preserve History, Celebrate Community and Inspire the Future is dependent on our ability to renovate, maintain and showcase some of the oldest homes and buildings in McKinney; to teach adults and children alike about early life in North Texas; and bring together the community for occasions that celebrate our shared culture and values.

As you might guess, the cessation of daily life as we knew it came at our busiest timeof year – weddings, school programs, private parties and our widely popular Farm Fresh dinner event have all been canceled or postponed. Unfortunately, expenses such as insurance, utilities and maintenance have not.

But, neither has our spirit and passion for history.

Historic preservation in McKinney began when a group of strong willed ladies stood up to city hall and saved the 2 Dulaney homes from demolition; since then McKinney’s history has become an integral part of our community identity and part of what makes McKinney “Unique by Nature”.
