The town we today call Concord is nearly four centuries old. However, it exists within a far older place Indigenous people call Musketaquid. For thousands of years the river provided food, transportation and fertile soil for agriculture.
Within Concord and Minute Man National Historical Park there is physical evidence of the people of Musketaquid dating back thousands of years, such as the projectile points pictured above.
