While the Pierce-Willits House dates to 1764 and 1809, drawings in the map room trace Concord’s beginnings more than 80 years earlier, including one commissioned by William Penn showing the outline of the future township. The walls are augmented with deeds, indentures and photos of Baltimore Pike from its dirt-road years. School is in session in the center room, where a desk with inkwell, eighth grade diploma from the Concord School District, rocking chair circa 1790, doll and doll chair share space with mementos from the career of lifelong resident and teacher...

Chuck Bednarik was a stalwart at both linebacker and center for the 1960 NFL champion Philadelphia Eagles. Pro football was like that in 1960, a gang fight in shoulder pads, devoid of the high-tech veneer its violence has taken on today. The crackback was legal, and all the Philadelphia Eagles could do about it that Sunday in Cleveland was carry a linebacker named Bob Pellegrini off on his shield. His first choice was already banged up, and after that the standard 38-man NFL roster felt as tight as a hangman's noose. And Charles Philip Bednarik, who already had a full-time job as Philadelphia's offensive center and a part-time job selling concrete after practice, headed onto the field without a word. Just the way Bednarik himself had climbed behind the machine gun in a B-24 for 30 missions as a teenager fighting in World War II. It was a family tradition: Duty called, you answered. Chuck Bednarik was 35 years old, still imposing at 6 ft. 3 in. and 235 pounds, but also the father of one daughter too many to be what he really had in mind -- retired. So here he was in his 12th NFL season, telling himself he was taking it easy on his creaky legs by playing center after all those years as an All- Pro.
