East McKinney is being revitalized for a new generation. What has been seen as "old", is new again through a changing demographic. The historic square has changed to meet the needs of younger, hipper families who are looking for that urban/suburban oasis. A little something for everyone!
With growth comes growing pains. New visions for old homes sometimes makes change difficult. The double edged sword of change, means those of us who have been here a longtime have to adapt. The freedom to express unique ideas about your home is what makes living here so special.
We have the unexpected at every turn; bold colors, wildy yards, chain link, picket & iron fences (in the front yard), artistic sculptures, vintage structures & "in-town" farms, not to mention aviaries, greenhouses, & chicken coops! We thrive on making our homes our own. The love of our community is what makes East Siders "Unique by Nature"!
