1. "I lived alone, in the woods, a mile from any neighbor, in a house which I had built myself, on the shore of Walden Pond, in Concord, Massachusetts, and earned my living by the labor of my hands only." -- Walden; Henry David Thoreau
2. "Tonight, what began on the commons in Concord, Massachusetts, as an alliance of farmers and workers, of cobblesmen and tinsmiths, of statesmen and students, of mothers and wives, of men and boys, lives two centuries later as America! My name is Josiah Bartlet, and I accept your nomination for the Presidency of the United States!" -- The West Wing
Concord is a town in Massachusetts that Nathaniel Hawthorne succinctly labeled “Eden.” Due to its distinction as the birthplace of the American Revolution and its plethora of literary giants, Henry James described Concord as “the biggest little place in America,” its influence only rivaled by the cities of Boston, New York, and Chicago.
Beyond Concord’s immense historical influence, it remains a wealthy and intellectual community (Harvard chose to relocate here during the War of Independence.). Social grace and a genteel manner are the norm in this preppy suburb, where residents frown upon crass displays of wealth and the Brahmin values of class and understated elegance still rule.
Concord is further noted for the uniform quality of its superb schools, ranging from its nationally recognized public schools to the numerous top private schools in residence, including Middlesex, Concord Academy, Fenn, and Nashoba Brooks.
Every generation of Concordians returns to reside in and continue Concord’s rich tradition as arguable the most idyllic town in America.
"I'm from Concord, Massachusetts. There's a reason I chose to reside in Concord, Massachusetts. I'm an American. Concord, Massachusetts is where the Minutemen fought off the British, personifying the heroism and patriotism of what it means to be an American."
The Honorable Harvey Cooper, Boston Legal

Seeing as concord is a wealthy town (don't try to deny it, the average (AVERAGE) house is 800k) There are many children who's parents are vice presidents of companies such as oracle and bank of america. Many people are very materialistic (i'm not saying that's good or bad, just a fact) And preppiness is prevalent. There is also a fairly large contigent of skaters/punks/"individualists"/druggies (i'm not saying they are the same thing) probably because of the large sect of preps. There are a lot of broken homes, which possibly lead to the drug/alcohol abuse. All in all however, most concord kids (despite how rich their families are) are just like normal average kids you can find everywhere (and yes we have our fair share of complete and total idiots.)

A small town in MA 20 minutes from boston. There are a lot of punks running around and most kids do drugs because they can afford them. Concord is about average to upper class. Acton cares way too much about sports because that is all they can possibly have against Concord, but the truth is Concord doesn't care all that much about sports, and they are still good at them anyways, just in some cases is not nearly as good as Acton. Most Concordians are rich and can act stand-offish to people they don't like or are not from around here, and it's often confused with being snobby.
Tourists: "Let's take pictures of this historical town!"
Concordians: "Ew stupid tourists."
A small city in the East Bay of Northern California.
