Attention all Concord Township residents - Our community bicentennial is a few years away (2022) and plans are now underway to publish a community history book. Since early 2004 township volunteers have begun the monumental task of preserving the photographs, artifacts, and images of Concord’s past. Did you know Concord Township had a post office branch on Ravenna Road near Town Hall circa 1834-1901? Do you have any photos, old cancelled letters or information to share? Concord had many early industries and 20th c. farms. We need pictures or artifacts of Pease Mill, Chair Factory Falls, Ridgewood Farm and other community businesses across the decades. Search and locate your old family albums and photo collections for old pictures of Concord Township and its early histories.
It is incumbent upon all community residents to share in this mission. We are seeking old school photos, former famous homes, Concord business photos across the decades, farming images and long time resident images.
If you are in possession of a unique or old township photo-donate it or send a copy of it to the township historical collection annex at the Concord Community Center. Better yet -The week of
is designated as
Township History Collections Week
. Stop by the Community Center during normal business hours to drop off your donations or to have it scanned into our collections archives. It will make all the difference!
