ⓘ Concord Village Historic District (Concord, Michigan)

The Concord Village Historic District in Concord, Michigan dates back to 1836, and consists of historic structures located along Hanover Street from Spring to Michigan Streets and North Main Street from Railroad to Monroe Streets. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.


1. History

The village of Concord was first settled in the early 1830s by William Van Fossen and Thomas McGee. The village itself was platted in 1836 by Isaac Swain, a wealthy local farmer. A flour mill was built by Isaac and William Van Fossen on the north side of the river in 1837, and became the foundation of the local economy for the next few decades. Concord became a small village as more settlers arrived and built houses. A small business district, primarily in wooden building, grew along Main Street

In 1871, the Michigan Air Line Railroad between Jackson and Niles was built. The track was leased by the Michigan Central Railroad, and eventually became part of the New York Central Railroad. The availability of transportation spurred growth in Concord, and local agriculture boomed. In addition, small industries sprang up in the area around the mill. The railroad also heralded a boom in residential building boom, with about fifty houses constructed in Concord in the early 1870s. At the same time, the wood frame buildings in the villages commercial district were slowly replaced with one and two-story brick commercial buildings. Toward the end of the 1800s, a series of fires destroyed most of the remaining wooden commercial buildings in the district.

As the automobile rose in the 1900s, the railroad died out. Some auto-related businesses opened in the village, but the main highway now M-60 was routed several blocks north of the downtown in the 1930s, and the district avoided the intrusion of auto-related businesses of the later twentieth century.
