We did not explore the entire cemetery, and found the grave for John Wesley Hardin easily and quickly. There is a sign at the entry way which shows you where everything is. The "you are here" is a little hard to find, (it's at the top left side of the sign). From the sign you can travel easily about in... More

Guess it is as good as anywhere to be entombed...when I am at that state it'll be fine to rest there. The probationers will clean the weeds out for community service.

Concordia is one of the oldest cemeteries in El Paso. Many landmark El Pasoans are buried here. Gunslingers, badmen, madams, mayors, marshalls, soldiers and early El Paso political leaders are laid two rest here. Free. park along the street. Enjoy the stroll. History comes alive here.

From the pioneers, to the Chinese, gun fighters and buffalo soldiers , Mormons and Jews and so on, all lay there in peace! Look at the tombstones and try to imagine how it was to live at that time! Imagine tumbleweeds blown around from the wind......John Wesley Hardin a famous gun fighter lays there and you'll find his grave fast!... More

A nice stop for visitors to El Paso. Lots of tacky plastic flowers, tumbleweeds, dust, and tombstones with history. Walk around in the bright sunshine, then stumble over to the L & J for a tasty Mexican meal, queso fondido and hot tortillas, piping hot enchiladas and other dishes. A great place to stop for your last meal--in El Paso.

This looks as though you stepped back in time to the old west. This really looks like the dusty end of the line, seemingly not much changed from the 1880's. It just has not moved into the 21st century with the rest of the city. It is enclosed within a stone wall, but one may walk or drive in to... More

Recently made a tour of dead Texas gunfighters, of which John Wesley Hardin was a highlight. His grave is very easy to find and if you look around you can see Diamond Dick too. One highlight is the area reserved for the buffalo soldiers. Well worth seeing.

This cemetery has seen many famous and infamous people buried here. John Wesley Hardin's grave is a popular site. The new memorial to the Buffalo Soldiers is impressive. Unfortunately, much of Concordia is under maintained and much has had vandalism. In recent years, a greater attempt has been made to maintain what is there. I enjoyed my visit to the... More

So unfortunate the vandalism in this cemetery and the sad shape of some of the headstones - some by obvious poor craftmanship - feel sorry for the families who paid for headstone monuments that weren't properly kilned or just poor work . Someone should donate a big fund to get this beautiful and historic cemetery to make it look better.... More

Visiting here just to see the historical graves is interesting but the night time ghost tours add so much to the experience!
