Concord in 1804 was a fast-growing community, a thriving iron-smelting
town and seaport before and during the Revolution, and a gateway for
travelers going north and south basically because the mill dam offered
the only road across the Nanticoke River).
In 1921 men who had spent their childhoods in Concord and had moved
away sensed that the history and memory of the town should be preserved.
They founded what is today known as the Sons, Daughters, and Friends
of Concord. The prime purpose of the group today is the perpetual
care of the cemetery of Concord United Methodist Church.
Everyone is invited to attend this unique community fellowship. For
details contact the group's president, Frances Givens, 629-2659),
