McKinney: Heard-Craig Center for the Arts

Heard-Craig Center for the Arts

The life of a wealthy early-20th-century mercantile owner is embodied at the Heard-Craig House Historic Center. Lillie and Stephen Heard constructed the 7,000-square-foot mansion in 1900 based on a design by noted Dallas architect J.E. Flanders. The family resided for 70 years in the home, which was a center of business, social, art and literary activities. Recently restored, it’s open for guided tours and private events.
