Collin McKinney and Early Texas Exhibit
2016 marked the 250th birthday of Texas Patriot, Collin McKinney. The Collin County Historical Society & Museum honored his contributions through a year long exhibit, Collin McKinney and Early Texas.
Visitors learned of Collin McKinney’s life and role as a settler, surveyor, church founder, and member of the committee that drafted the Texas Declaration of Independence. The exhibit included a scale model and historic photos of Collin McKinney’s home. Our city and county were named in his honor.
