Concord, located in Cabarrus County, is ground zero for much of the NASCAR industry and Lowes Motor Speedway, which is a five billion dollar segment of the North Carolina economy. The city was founded in 1796 on a 26 acre site. When you look at Concord today and see the wonderful mixture of progress and heritage, the perfect blend of business, industrial, and residential life, you can see that Concord still embodies the meaning of its name - "harmony." Today, Concord is located right off of I-85 and historic downtown Concord features a quaint main street with locally owned shops. Another draw to the Concord area is a popular, new mega-shopping and entertainment destination, Concord Mills.
