The Depression and TVABy 1887, Concord was the second largest community in Knox County, second to Knoxville. The Village of Concord was a regional transportation center. Tennessee marble, crushed limestone, lime, logs and farm produce were gathered at its public dock. Passenger ferries and commercial boats landed there, and the railroad provided passenger connections to Knoxville and other cities. Around the turn of the century the area was thriving. referred to in early histories as "...a right lively little town," the town had grown to include several general stores, specialty shops, private schools and churches, two livery stables and flower mills, and a brickyard, lime kiln, inn, saloon, undertaking establishment, railroad depot, bank post office, ice cream parlor, drug store, barber shop and fairground. Many of the original buildings were destroyed by fire in 1916 but were quickly rebuilt.
