Treasuring a Proud History

Abstract:
In the 1970s, when Cabarrus County's 1876 courthouse was threatened with demolition, concerned citizens saved it. That was the beginning of the county's preservation movement. In downtown Concord many stores and offices now operate from buildings dating back to 1885; Victorian homes were restored; several museums on local history opened; and many examples of 19th-century architectural brickwork have been preserved.
