Put on Your Walking Shoes and Step Back Into History

Walking Tours

Residential Walking Tour

The Residential Walking Tour with its interactive and PDF maps, is a small sampling of our history told through the varied architectural styles of our preserved historic homes. You can walk along beautiful tree-lined streets and see the homes of early entrepreneurs who influenced McKinney’s early history. 

Historic Building Walking Tour

View the interactive map and read about the rich history behind historic downtown buildings. The buildings now house restaurants, shops and modern businesses, but once they were home to movie theaters, a jail, a newspaper office and an opera house. 

Downtown Historic Walking Tour

The Downtown Walking Tour PDF map shows you parts of the square that you would not normally experience. You will have adventures like walking past the site of the last legal hanging in Collin County.
