This is a really interesting Cemetery. I thought it was neat that they have their cemetery split up in sections depending on race. So you get to see some Different country placings

Walk through history. Try to visit when there is a cemetery tour. The Halloween tour is the BEST!!! There are several cemeteries in one here....the Chinese, the Mormons and old El Paso. Of course, John Wesley Hardin is here.

Historical. A few infamous people buried here. Be sure to visit the grave of John W. Harding!

Likely named by emigrants from Concordia, Missouri, who emigrated there from Germany. This wonderful cemetery is bound by Yandell, US54, I-10, and Stevens. It is continually being upgraded and maintained throughout the year, and is fantastic! Regular "ghost" tours are, as well as other tours and special openings. I have pedaled there without any special occasion, and have viewed the historic marked gravesites. I highly recommend visiting here--you don't need to know someone to get in--and you won't stay, either! But donations are always appreciated!

As an Old West buff I enjoy places where real life "then" touches today, even if in a cemetery. If you have an appreciation for those who pioneered the West (good guys and bad) take time to walk through Concordia. You'll see the graves of soldiers, pioneers and at least one gunslinger, John Wesley Hardin. No concessions, no bathrooms, little shade, just considerable walking as you step back into the frontier days of El Paso and West Texas.
