Located at 3701 South Custer Rd. in McKinney Texas. The land that Storybook ranch is on was established in 1887 as a working cattle ranch. In its beginning, it encompassed over 600 acres, with time the ranch has become smaller. It was originally a place of Native Americans and settlers. The original owner of the property named the town in the area Dry Bones.
Today, the land that was once Dry Bones is compromised of 15 authentic buildings original to the 1840s through the 1860s. These buildings were brought in from various different locations around Texas and the United States. It is a great place to hold an event with a western theme.
