CONCORD, TEXAS (Rusk County). Concord, one of the oldest settlements in Rusk County, is 5½ miles east of Mount Enterprise in the southeastern part of the county. The town reportedly got its name from the general harmony among its early settlers. In the 1930s the community had twenty-five residents and six businesses. During the 1940s Concord had 125 inhabitants, four businesses, and a school. Its population began to decrease during the 1950s, and by the 1980s it had fallen to twenty-three, where it remained in 2000.
