The 2006 Restoration

Community leaders and volunteers invested countless hours in research and planning for the restoration of this historic facility. The McKinney Community Development Corporation and the City of McKinney moved forward and reviewed a compilation of community forums and planning sessions to evaluate the building’s use and potential programming. In October 2003, a proposal was approved to re-craft the Courthouse as a cultural center for the citizens of McKinney and Collin County.

After extensive planning, diligent attention to detail, and respect for historic integrity, the City of McKinney worked hand-in-hand with the Texas Historical Commission to preserve the original beauty of the Historic Collin County Courthouse. MPAC distinguishes McKinney as a regional leader in supporting the arts and cultivating a unique cultural community and generating economic development.

The project was funded by the City of McKinney, McKinney Community Development Corporation, and Collin County. The project meets Texas Historical Commission guidelines for rehabilitation.
