Historic Cabarrus Association, Inc.’s Concord Museum is located in the heart of downtown Concord on Union Street. The 1876 Cabarrus County Courthouse was designed by architect George S.H. Appleget and served as a judicial center for Cabarrus County for 100 years. This architectural treasure is a two-and-a-half story brick building covered in stucco and merges Greek Revival, Italianate, and Second Empire styles that was popular at the time. The Cabarrus County Courthouse is considered one of North Carolina’s finest public buildings of the late 19th century, and its preservation by Historic Cabarrus Association, Inc. in the 1970s is one of our crowning achievements.
