Concord, North Carolina, Cabarrus County's largest city, was established in 1796 near the center of the county to serve as the seat of local government. It began as a small hamlet and became the major cotton market for an area that included parts of several surrounding counties.
Concord Mills, the shopping entertainment destination of the Carolinas and most popular visitor attraction in North Carolina, features over 200 stores including manufacturer and retail outlets and interactive stores like Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, Sun & Ski and Build-A-Bear. Other popular shopping destinations include Cannon Village with its Colonial-era ambiance, Carolina Mall and Historic Downtown Concord.
Concord retains its handsome neighborhoods of fine Italianate, Queen Anne, and Colonial Revival residences to the north and south of the central business district. Concord was named as a symbol of harmony after much lively discussion about whether the center of trade should be in the northern or southern part of the county.
