McKinney, TX Volksmarch (10K)

The walk started at the Performing Arts Center which is the old Collin County Courthouse.  The building is the third courthouse built in McKinney and was originally built in 1874-75.  It was modernized in 1927 when they removed the roof and tower caps to add a third story.  A basement was also added at that time.  The work resulted in a classical revival style building.  It was used as the courthouse until 1979 when a new courthouse was built.

The walk passed many fine old homes and a couple of historical churches.  It was an interesting walk.
