Geography[edit]

Concord in 1878.

Concord is located in Lauramie Township around the intersection of county roads 350 East and 900 South, about four miles south of Lafayette. Wea Creek is along the west side of Concord, and the creek's east branch is along the south; the two meet just west of town and flow generally northwest to the Wabash. The town has an elevation of 732 feet.

County Road S. 350 East is also known as Concord Road, which is the street it becomes upon entering Lafayette; within Concord this road used to be known as Main Street. The town originally had two other north-south streets farther west (Mulberry and Poplar) as well as four east-west streets: Hickory, Elm, Main-Cross, and Walnut.
