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.

The Cabarrus County Veterans Museum has also moved to a new location: the rotunda of the Cabarrus County Governmental Center at 65 Church Street. This is a temporary location, through the end of June, but positive feedback from the community may help extend our stay at this site. Museum hours are Mondays through Fridays, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free.

The May 17th Gem Theatre premiere of the local textile documentary Stitched in Time, an exploration of our county's textile heritage, was a huge success, attracting  nearly 800 people! Discussions are underway about additional theater screenings.

Produced as the class project for the Leadership Cabarrus Class of 2012 in conjunction with Historic Cabarrus Association and other partners, Stitched in Time will be available as a DVD in the Concord Museum Gift Shop very soon--call 704-920-2465 for availability.

Historic Cabarrus Association wishes to thank the Leadership Cabarrus Class of 2012 and the Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce for donating to us a new HD videocamera so that we may continue capturing the stories of the mill workers -- plus veterans, teachers, and other locals -- who helped make Cabarrus County great. Thank you, Leadership Cabarrus!
