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.

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.
