Good business has been key to Concord's success as an All-America city. Great progressive infrastructure, extensive city services, financial business incentives, a qualified work force, and an unsurpassed quality of lief distinguishes Concord as a unique city in the Charlotte Metro Area.
If you're a history nut, there's lots to mine in Cocnord's 200 year past. German and Scottish settlers had a disagreement on county seat's location, and they eventually compromised on a new city, Concord, to be built on a 26 acre site in 1896.
