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

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.
