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!

Concordia is, I believe, at least one of El Paso's original cemeteries. Many visit, of course, to see John Wesley Hardin's gravesite. But there is a lot of early history. It is nice to see some of the names of the builders of El Paso here. The early pioneers buried here would be astounded to see the freeway that now... More

I took my dad here because he wanted to see "the cowboy's grave". It was hot and desolate but still very interesting. I recommend a short visit. It's a bit confusing because the Masonic cemetery has a fence that cuts out a part of the cemetery but once we figured that out we walked around and entered the main cemetery.... More
