The Robbins House is a Concord-based nonprofit organization focused on raising awareness of Concord’s African, African American, and antislavery history from the 17th through the 19th centuries. Our mission is to reveal the little known African American history of Concord and its regional and national importance. Our vision is to inspire conversation, expand understanding and contribute to a better society.

Goals are:

  • To unearth and share the stories of Concord’s earliest African Americans (particularly residents of African descent in the 19th century Robbins House);
  • To create educational resources based upon the experience of Concord’s early African Americans; and
  • Connect their early fights for freedom and equality with modern social justice movements.
