The area surrounding Concord, from the Latin for "harmony," was settled in 1750. Our county, Cabarrus County, was officially formed in 1792. The North Carolina General Assembly named Concord as the county seat in 1796, and from the mid 1800s to 1920, Concord became a booming textile and banking center. Today, we have a diverse economic base that includes distribution, manufacturing, racing, and professional services.
Concord offers an excellent variety of entertainment and leisure for visitors, as well as residents. Whether you want to attend one of NASCAR's biggest events, go on a shopping spree, or take in the beauty of the Historic District, Concord has it all.
