Concord, New Hampshire, has an interesting blend of cultures, including Native American tribes and immigrants from many other nations. Concord has embraced this mix, apparent in the place names still used today. This history and ancestry has helped to shape Concord into the diverse and strong community it is to this day.
Elizabeth Jewell's interest in Concord stems from three previous generations of her family living in Concord and from working in the city for over thirty years. She has seen a lot of change in her time and much more since her great grandparents raised ten children in this community. These changes have incorporated current needs and technology with the deep-seated historical awareness and interests of Concord's residents.
