Was chowing down at L&J café and decided to take a quiet stroll through Concordia cemetery.....visit a place where world famous gunfighters were laid to rest. Old place ...Old souls....a real insight into Old El Paso.........a must..!

I don't understand why some reviewers have criticised this cemetery because they feel it is not sufficiently well maintained. Come on folks, that is the whole point. If it was well maintained and pristine it would not have the same draw and sense of mystery for visitors like me. It is an old graveyard with random adorned graves - not... More

but then again, it is the desert. Was very disappointed that it is not kept up better. There are only cactus in the main part of the cemetery - the Jewish section has nice trees and grass. Was slightly un-impressed with John Wesley Hardin's grave.

We had some extra time in El Paso and decided to see the grave of gunslinger John Wesley Hardin. I'm not a Wild West buff, but the atmosphere of this dusty cemetery carries the mystique. All I knew was the claim from an old Time/Life book series commercial that he once killed a man for snoring too loud. Thankfully a... More

I go every other visit, I took out of town friends this time and they enjoyed the history also. It's like the old west, gunslingers, buffalo soldiers, the only Chinese Cemetary in Texas. Tumble weeds and headstones. Visit if you have a chance. Get out of the car and read some of the stones.

The Concordia Cemetary is a very interesting place to visit. You need to enter at the main entrance to see the map to the Graves of El Paso's infamous and famous. There is a lot of history to be found as you wander through the rows of tombstones. There is an "Infant Nursery" with victims of the influenza outbreak of... More

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.
