Concord is underrated as a location for area home buyers who love historic houses.
The city’s textile mills boomed after the Civil War, and there are still plenty of homes reflecting the wealth and growth of that era, most built between 1880-1930. The North Union Historic District is home to Queen Anne cottages and several Colonial Revival, Italianate, Greek Revival properties.
The E.W.G. Fisher house, originally built for a local merchant, is near notable historic properties including the home of Charles A. Cannon, the longtime president of Cannon Mills, and the First Presbyterian Church.
