History of Concord
History of Concord
The region that would one day become Concord was the territory of the Pennacook Tribe of the Abenaki people for thousands of years before colonization. They subsisted on freshwater fishing and farming. The first European settlers in the area, emigrants from Massachusetts in the early 1700s, called it Penacook. In 1734 the town was incorporated as Rumford. It did not become ‘Concord’ until 1755, in honor of the settlement of a bitter land dispute with the nearby town of Bow. The town became a center of furniture-making and granite quarrying in the 1800s, and then later developed a successful railroad industry and several textile mills.

Before you decide to buy Concord, NH land, get to know the terrain and how the city fits into it. Concord is located in south-central New Hampshire, on the shores of the Merrimack River which neatly divides Merrimack County. Nearby Penacook Lake provides most of the city’s drinking water. The city’s downtown is built on a terrace nearly at river level, with residential neighborhoods creeping up both sides of the valley.

Pennycooke / NW Concord Rural If you are buying a mobile home in Concord but want plenty of space, consider Penncooke, also known as NW Concord Rural. Median housing prices are a bit above average for the US at just under $300,000, but still well below average for the state. Few of the buildings are more than 50 years old, and many date from the 2000s and 2010s. The vacancy rate in Pennycooke is a rail-thin 2.6%, though, so demand for properties in this neighborhood is high. West Concord Rural West Concord Rural is another moderate-to high priced neighborhood, with median home values hovering around $299,000. This puts it near the lower 1/3 of New Hampshire neighborhoods, but in the upper 2/3 for the US as a whole.

The vacancy rate in West Concord rural is just over 10%, very close to the national average.

Manor Road Median housing prices in the Manor Road neighborhood of Concord are reaching up toward $310,000, so you won’t find too many Concord mobile homes for sale there.

Again vacancy rates are very low – barely 4% – so you might struggle to find just the right place if manor Road is your only option. Best to be flexible.
