Historic Cabarrus Association, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the heritage of Cabarrus County and the City of Concord.

We achieve this goal through a variety of means, including our management of two museums in Historic Downtown Concord:

Museum 2 The Cabarrus County Veterans Museum, through which we honor the County’s servicemen from World War I to the current day.
Museum 1
The Concord Museum, which archives historical artifacts from Cabarrus County’s pioneer days to twentieth-century businesses and schools.

We also conduct a host of outreach activities and produce print and video materials in our efforts to educate residents, students, and visitors about our community’s rich history.
