    Arkansas native and Confederate soldier John Spenser Heard (1841-1933) joined his family here in McKinney about 1865. He married Rachel Wilson in 1884. Business success allowed the Heards to benefit numerous local causes and to build this home in 1921. Designed by the Dallas firm Ye Planery in the classical revival style, the house features colossal corinthian columns, giant entablature and a dentiled pediment. It remained in the Heard family until 1987. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1993
