We came here after visiting the L & J cafe. Our main goal was to visit the grave of the old gun slinger, John Wesley Hardin, but we enjoyed walking through looking at the other old graves. Many are very beautiful and unique. We actually got a mini-tour by one of the caretakers which was wonderful as well.

We ventured to this cemetery to see the graves of the Buffalo Soldiers buried here. It looks like a planned memorial to these famed riders is forthcoming, what is there now is a large bordered area. Open to the public with structured viewing hours. Historical site that won't take long to tour.

I almost didn't make it there. I did not know that I was allowed to drive through it. Make sure you go there through the entrance/gate from the E Yandell Dr. (located in the middle of the fence/wall). There is a map of it (there is another one next to the gate on Boone Street but in a very bad... More

I visited Concordia Cemetery because I wanted to visit the graves site of John Wesley Hardin, a gunslinger, who was shot and killed in El Paso, Tx. in 1895. This is a true "old west" cemetery that will take you back in time over a hundred years once you enter it's gates. There is also a large section in the... More

I had the opportunity to visit the Concordia Cemetery while visiting El Paso this week and what an experience. From Outlaws and Gunfighters to Buffalo Soldiers and Civil War Vets, this has them all. I have seen Boot Hill and several other Old West Cemeteries but Concordia Cemetery is the most interesting of them all. If you enjoy history of... More

Very well labeled to find the famous graves. Easy to get to and drive through. Places to sit if you are walking. I would not recommend walking this during the summer mid day.

As a historic site, Concordia Cemetery has it all. Gunfighters, Buffalo Soldiers, a variety of the infamous and ordinary mixed in together. Usually has a historic overview once a year when you can get the inside scoop with docents dressed up in historic costumes. Interesting place to go, but not during the months of June-mid September!

It is a very interesting and historical place to visit because it was the first cemetery in my hometown of El Paso..so you can imagine how many graves are here ..Have been told that there are over 60,000 souls buried here..Among them are John Wesley Hardin, Constable Selman (who Killed Hardin)..Father Pinto..(the founder of Catholic churches in ELP)...so many..There are...
