The History of Concord Coaches

A group of Concord citizens formed The Abbot-Downing Historical Society in 1977. Known as the Concord Coach Society until 2011, the name changed to reflect the greater scope of activities of the Abbot-Downing Company.

Peter James, officer of the Society, presents the history of the Concord Coaches in a lecture Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 6:30 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside Building. This free event is open to the public.

The society’s mission is to collect and maintain vehicles, papers, pictures, tools and other memorabilia relating to the company and other manufacturers of horse-drawn vehicles.
