HISTORY by Tony Howe: 

Concord was a station on the Yazoo & Mississippi Valley RR on the northeast side of Natchez. It was named for the large mansion built nearby in 1789 by the Spanish Governor of this area, Carlos de Grand Pre. The house burned in 1901, leaving only the staircase and brick service wing standing. See article on the house here. The railroad had a flag stop here. It was also the location of the Concord Brick Co. and a large meat packing plant. Later, Armstrong Tire & Rubber Co. built a large tire manufacturing plant on the site of the brick plant.
