Concord is on Farm Road 778 two miles northwest of Hainesville and 5½ miles southeast of Quitman in south central Wood County. It was probably settled in the 1870s and by the early 1880s had a one-teacher school known as the Concord Academy. By 1891 the area had a church, called Hubbard's Chapel Baptist Church, after settler Hubbard Moseley (or Mosley), who donated land to the church. In 1896 seventy-six White and thirty-eight Black students were taught by two teachers in one-room schools. In 1932 seventy-seven White students attended classes in nine grades taught by three teachers, and forty-five Black students attended classes in seven grades taught by one teacher. A few years later Concord's schools closed, and the community had only a church and a number of scattered dwellings. In 1960 a single dwelling and the church remained at the site, but by the late 1970s several more dwellings were in the vicinity.
