Jump to: navigation, search

Adriatica McKinney is a housing development in Stonebridge Ranch, McKinney, Texas nearing completion. It is notable for being a partial replica of the town of Supetar, Croatia.[1][2]

According to news reports, the developer Jeff Blackard is taking pains to lend Adriatica an air of authenticity, from purchasing church bells from Croatia, to Croatian language signs on waste disposal areas. The developer claims that marketing expenses have been minimal, as the word about the project mostly spread informally, and that the location is becoming somewhat of a tourist attraction.[2]
