Here is El Paso's toast to the dear hearts who lived here in the nineteenth century. Graves of desperados and ordinary people are here. Check out the decorations for the Day of the Dead. And military holidays. And then escape across the street to the L & J for a fine Mexican meal.

Check up on who has been buried here before you go inside. There are some nice surprises. L & J's Mexican Bar/restaurant is nearby ... its a favorite with the locals... good food, usually full.

Possibly the meanest man in the west, John Wesley is buried here. Go towards the later part of the day so you can catch some cooler temperatures. There are lots of neat and non ghoulish historical facts to talk the kids through. Then you an walk across the street and eat at the L&J Cafe, possibly the best green chile,... More

Interesting place! Worth visiting if you are in town. It was interesting to see a segregated cemetery. It was done by race and religion;a lot of history here other than the 'main attraction': John Wesley Hardin. The ranger on duty had many interesting facts and stories to share. Go to L&J cafe for lunch after visiting. It is just around... More

Much bigger than expected. There are several maps around the property that list notable people buried there and the location of their grave. The map isn't very clear about the Jewish section--it's walled off and the entrance is from the street, not from within the cemetery.

Historical cemetery well worth the visit. Many Buffalo soldiers are buried here. This is also were John Wesley Hardin is buried. The Historical Society has annual reenactments. This a great place for all to see, the historical value is priceless. After you have worked up an appetite be sure and visit another El Paso landmark just across the street the... More

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
