Description 

The Concord Presbyterian Church is significant as an intact, early-nineteenth century simple church building. The congregation of Concord Presbyterian Church is said to have worshipped at the present site of the church as early as 1796. This building was reportedly constructed ca. 1818. The church is a one-story, brick, gable-roofed building with a meeting house floor plan and a small, rectangular, gable-roofed rear extension. The gable ends have boxed cornices with returns and a stringcourse. The fašade has a central entrance flanked by single six-over-six windows. The side elevations have shuttered, six-over-six windows. The foundation is granite. There is a cemetery with a cast-iron fence and gates to the left of the church. Listed in the National Register December 6, 1984.
