1890

This brick building, with its rock-faced granite trim, was Concord's police station from 1890 until 1975. Noted local architect Edward Dow, with Albert Bodwell, designed the structure. Its arched openings show the influence of the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Note the distinctive granite voussoirs that mark the two original entrances from Warren Street. Local granite also appears in the sunburst and finials atop the building.
The garage bays on the west were added for police vehicles in 1915. Now opened up, they lead into Bicentennial Square. The solid steel door on which this plaque is mounted once separated the officers' guard room from the jail cells.
Concord police made national news, when they deftly captured Iowa prison escapees, Edgar Cook and George Stubblefield, on March 2, 1945. Dubbed the "Toothbrush Twins," the men were notorious for fashioning keys from toothbrush handles, then picking locks to escape from jail or steal get-away cars.
The Police Station is part of the Downtown Concord National Register Historic District.
