Twenty years ago, tourists and residents strolling in the Milldam couldn’t find a restroom. There weren’t any.
But through the work of dedicated business owners and town government officials, the Concord Visitors Center opened with (air-conditioned!) public toilets and a brick building staffed with knowledgeable citizens to offer directions and sell Concord-themed merchandise.
On Sept. 15, the Visitors Center was rededicated with a ribbon-cutting and refreshments.
“It’s good to see the town government show support for the Visitors Center,” said Beth Williams, director of Tourism and Economic Vitality for Concord.
Williams said her office has expanded now to include bike rentals and tours of the town’s historic sites.
Chamber of Commerce President Marie Foley and Williams cut the red ribbon and sliced cake to the several dozen visitors.
