Concord, one of the earliest communities in New England was incorporated as a town in 1635. It began as the first interior, non-tidal water town of Massachusetts. Farming and its position at the joining of the Concord, Assabet and Sudbury Rivers allowed the town to flourish quickly. Concord is of enormous historical significance as the site of the first battle of the American Revolution. In April 1775, colonial minutemen engaged British troops in sixteen miles of running combat that saw 273 British and 95 Americans dead. Much of the action occurred around Concord Green.
The Town of Concord also has a rich literary tradition. Louisa May-Alcott, Bronson Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne all spent time living in Concord and Thoreau found inspiration at Concord's Walden Pond to compose his philosophical masterpiece. The town has labored successfully to preserve the past of Concord's six historic districts. Long a community of farmers and wealthy gentry, Concord features simple colonial construction homes as well as wonderful high style architecture.
Concord has grown enormously since its beginnings over three-hundred and seventy years ago. After the highway replaced the river as the preferred conduit for transportation, Concord benefited from its position along Route 2 that connects Concord with Interstate 95/ Route 128, now the major corridor of Massachusetts's high tech industry.
Concord's residential boom continues. It is 18 miles north of Boston, but has its own local commercial and industrial activity to spur its growth. Nevertheless, the community has been successful in preventing over-development. Just over 17,000 people live in this town measuring 25 square miles. Despite its desirability, Concord hasn't become at all cluttered.
Concord offers its residents full-time police and fire departments and an excellent public school district of three elementary schools, two middle schools and a regional high school. Additionally, there are several private schools in the community. The towns bordering Concord include: Maynard and Acton on the west; Bedford and Lincoln on the east; Carlisle on the north; and Sudbury on the south.
