I love cemeteries; very much into genealogy even when not my family. John Wesley Hardin is buried there. Very close to the freeway. No grass so when wind blows, it can be unpleasant. Separate areas for Jewish and Chinese. Nice piece of history, especially for Old West buffs.

Read the reviews and had to go to see John Wesley Hardin's grave-it was picture worthy and easy to locate on the map at the entrance. Because it was so hot, we drove through the rest of the cemetery, not as much to see as I had hoped.

Where do I start? This cemetery has it all -- very old sections dating back to the 1880s, a Buffalo Soldier section, Chinese, and Mexican-American. I never get tired of it. If you want to take pictures, go in the morning so you can get the beautiful mountain in the background. The Concordia Cemetery Assoc has put benches and shelters... More

Concordia cemetery is a fascinating experience. The cemetery is quite large, with many interesting grave sites. We were looking for John Wesley Hardin's gravesite, but could not find it. Two kind cemetery workers walked us through the cemetery in the hot sun, to find the grave. I did not go to find ghosts, but to discover the interesting history of... More

Concordia is a huge historical cemetery, probably most noted for the grave of John Wesley Hardin, the infamous gunfighter. The cemetery is divided into sections such as the Catholic or Mormon, or county cemeteries. It's a good idea to pick up a brochure/map before making your way through the grounds. On the day we visited we came across a security... More

I made two stops at Concordia Cemetery during my visit to El Paso, including one after a late lunch at L & J Café. It is interesting, to say the least, to see the various markers and the dates. This is, if I recall correctly, the oldest cemetery in El Paso. John Wesley Hardin is buried here, and there's a... More

I visited Concordia Cemetery do some geocaching. I had drove past the cemetery many times but was not fully aware of the history within its walls. Visiting cemetery's is not for everyone so it you are into this sort of thing there are lots of interesting burial plots to visit.

This is a treasure trove of El Paso history, with the likes of John Wesley Harding by the Buffalo Soldiers, the Chinese community, etc. A fascinating stop for residents and visitors alike!
