The old courthouse on the square in downtown McKinney is now part of a museum and also an entertainment venue. Movies, dances, plays, weddings, and so much more take place in this wonderful building.

Another nice example of century old courthouse architecture saved from the wrecking ball. I learned while touring that the building has been bastardized from its 1880s origin during an enlargement & that's a shame. The building had even more charm in its original form. The...More
