This is a sad, dusty, windblown graveyard which is surely meaningful to relatives of the deceased buried here, but with no discernible draw for visitors. Wandered around for 25 minutes looking for the supposed gravesite of gunslinger Harden without ever locating it. Couldn't the City of El Paso or graveyard manager plant a few trees?? Desolate and depressing. The "2"... More

We've been to a few dozen cemeteries for historical interest. This one was just average but they do have a nice map out front and in other places. Interesting that there are separate sections for Buffalo Soldiers, Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Chinese in the same cemetery.

I was surprised to see that this oldest cemetery in El Paso has had some improvements but still has a ways to go. My paternal grandmother is buried here and her gravesite has still not been found. The Concordia's claim to fame is that the gunfighter, John Wesley Hardin, is buried here.

This is a cool cemetery to bad it is in such need of care. I feel bad for people buried here! The part where John Wesley Hardin is buried is pretty nice. The rest of it is overgrown with weeds. It looks nothing like it does from the google maps satellite picture. There are some really old graves here some... More

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
