Concord as described in 1939 [1]

Concord, shipping the farm produce of the surrounding valley, stands on the site of Rancho del Diablo (devil's ranch), granted to Salvio Pacheco in 1834. His descendants occupy the thick-walled adobe Pacheco House, standing in the shade of pepper trees at Concord and Salvio Avenues, which he built about a decade later. With its balconies, shuttered windows, and deep casements, it is well preserved within its protective wooden sheath. American squatters had begun settling on Pacheco's land by 1852. But his title was secured the next year by the United States Government. The patent date, 1853, is on the stone boundary posts in front of the house.
