Concord Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Massachusetts
Located less than 20 miles northwest of Boston center, the town of Concord can be found in Middlesex County, a county that has a deep historical connection. Concord, home to nearly 18,000 people, has carefully preserved the historic and literary aspects of the past. The North Bridge, where shots were fired in the first battle of the American Revolution, is lovingly preserved. Homes of literary greats Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau and the Alcott Family are also well maintained. Justly proud of their cultural heritage, residents foster the arts and enjoy a local chorus, orchestra, band, theatre group and two art centers.
Concord shares its many community organizations with the neighboring town of Carlisle, along with its public school district, Concord Public Schools, and several nature trails. The community still experiences a consistently steady population growth as more and more young professionals move away from the hustle and bustle of Boston for a more rural and historically charming New England Village lifestyle. If you're looking to live in a community that offers a lovely respite from the city, then Concord, Massachusetts is worth a visit.
