Concord is an extinct town and extinct plantation, now an unorganized territory (township) in the Central Somerset townships in Somerset County. The town of Concord was organized from Township 1, First Range of Bingham's Kennebec Purchase, West of Kennebec River (T1 R1 BKP WKR) in 1821. Concord annexed land from Township 1 R2 in 1829, but returned that land to Pleasant Ridge Plantation in 1860. In 1935 Concord surrendered its status as a town to become a plantation. The plantation status was surrendered in 1939, and since then it has remained an unorganized territory.[1] [2] [3]
