Mid-Century Modern: Carl Koch’s Conantum

The exhibit looks at Concord’s Conantum community and Carl Koch, the innovative architect who designed it. Every Concordian knows something about the Conantum story, but discovering the foundational ideas that launched it, and understanding the history of mid-twentieth century domestic architecture that inspired it, expand the story.

The Spanish Influenza Pandemic in Concord (September-November 1918)

The 1918 influenza pandemic, hastened by the dynamics of a world war, swept around the globe at alarming speed, leaving illness and death in its wake. Concord, in all its peaceful, small town charm, was not spared. Sporadic cases began to appear in late September; in October it had become a full blown health crisis, closing the schools for the entire month, and by mid-November was gone. The exhibit tells the story primarily through contemporaneous newspaper articles.
