About 26 miles east of downtown Charlotte, Concord, North Carolina is the largest suburb in the metropolitan area and the seat of Cabarrus County. European settlers began trickling into the area which would become Concord in the middle of the 1700’s. Scottish, Irish and German immigrants were the first to make their homes in Concord. The town’s name means “harmony” reflecting the final agreement between these groups which established Concord as the county seat in 1795. By the 1850’s Concord was a growing industrial city manufacturing cotton at a plant on the site of present-day Locke Mill Plaza. The cotton business benefited greatly from the presence of the North Carolina Railroad which ran just west of the small town and shipped products to the east and north. After the Civil War the cotton industry boomed in the Charlotte-Concord area with some of the new mills owned by men of the rising black middle class. In fact, the first cotton mill fully owned and operated by African-Americans was just two miles from the county courthouse in Concord. The Coleman Manufacturing Company opened their mill in 1897 under the direction of Warren C. Coleman, a former slave who attended Howard University in Washington D.C. and worked with Booker T. Washington. Coleman died in 1904 and his mill was purchased by J.D. Cannon (the name lives on today in the cotton industry) who ran a chain of mills throughout North Carolina. Coleman is remembered with a major boulevard in the southeast section of Concord. Both Charlotte and Concord prospered from cotton manufacturing for many decades after the Civil War and continued to grow over the years. Like Charlotte, Concord has seen increased population growth in the 21st century with the city tripling its population since 1990.
A Concord tutor can assist you in catching up on your most demanding academic courses so you can escape the books to enjoy the many exciting attractions in the Charlotte metropolitan region. Located at the Concord Mills Mall, the Sea Life Charlotte-Concord Aquarium features an ocean tunnel and ten interactive zones with exhibits highlighting a variety of sea creatures. The aquarium has over 250 different species such as clownfish, sharks, sea horses, jellyfish and turtles. Major displays include the Harbor Exhibit, Tropical Ocean Exhibit and the Shipwreck Exhibit. The aquarium prides itself on its “Breed, Rescue and Protect” program which helps ensure the quality of the animals under its care.
Opened in 1960, the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord hosts three important NASCAR races during the year. The 1.5-mile oval is home to the annual Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend. The race is part of the prestigious NASCAR Cup Series which determines the sports yearly champion. The past winners are a who’s who of stock car racing with Richard Petty taking the checkered flag twice, Dale Earnhardt three times and Jimmie Johnson four times. The track also hosts the NASCAR All-Star Race and the Bank of America 500.
For family fun, the Great Wolf Lodge Water Park is sandwiched between the Sea Life Aquarium and the Charlotte Motor Speedway on the western edge of Concord. The park includes a variety of water slides, rides and attractions. The “Howlin’ Tornado” takes riders through fast twists and turns before dropping them into the six-story “funnel of fun.” Raccoon Lagoon offers outdoor activities with fountains, water basketball and more slides. And for those who might not want to get wet, the park offers mini-golf, an arcade and a kids’ bowling alley.
