Abbot-Downing Historical Society

The Abbot-Downing Historical Society was formed in 1977 by a group of Concord citizens. Until 2011, it was known as the Concord Coach Society. The name was changed to reflect the greater scope of activities of the  Abbot-Downing Company.  Its purpose is two-fold: (1) To collect and maintain vehicles, papers, pictures, tools, and other memorabilia relating to the  Abbot-Downing Company and other manufacturers of horse drawn vehicles.The mission of the Abbot-Downing Historical Society is to educate people about the significance of the Concord Coach and its relationship to our history and lives today. To support this mission, the society collects, preserves and interprets materials related to the Concord Coach and Abbot-Downing Company and its role in American transportation.
