The Courtyard Theater in Historic Downtown Plano features a large stage and spacious lobby ideal for hosting recitals, stage plays, musicals, concerts, and even private parties. The 321-seat venue was originally built as a gymnasium for Cox High School, constructed in 1938 and restored in 1999. Its historic materials and styles were thoughtfully preserved and enhanced with modern functionalities and interior accents, creating a state-of-the-art facility that celebrates Plano’s past while providing a premier theatrical experience for today’s audiences.
Located within Haggard Park, the Interurban Railway Museum is a free history museum featuring interactive exhibits on electricity, science, and the history of the City of Plano and the Texas Electric Railway.
The Interurban is the only Texas Electric Railway station left between Sherman and Dallas, and Rail Car 360 is one of the original electric cars that carried mail and passengers between Denison and Waco from 1908 to 1948. The handsome red-and-cream railway car is a perfect place to snap a photo with friends or family!
