The City of Concord, North Carolina, located in the fast-paced County of Cabarrus, was first settled in 1750.

In 2000, Concord, knowing the importance a neighborhood reflects upon a city, developed and implemented the "Partnerships for Stronger Neighborhoods" program. This program was designed to enhance the lives of residents in the neighborhoods surrounding the city, increasing the quality of both life and events for those calling Concord home. There are currently 22 neighborhoods participating in what is quickly making this place one of the most sought-after communities for homebuyers in today's real estate market, offering modest homes to million dollar estates.
