This is not your typical cemetery. Dating back to the 1850's, outlaws, clergymen, free masons, paupers, and people of Jewish decent are buried here in the "Caliche". It's (very) hot in the summer to walk around this very large cemetery. Don't stand in one place...More

Google to find history, take your camera and take your picture in front of Wesly Hardin's gravesite, the infamous gunslinger. Night tours are available with a guide, now isn't that creepy. When you are finished walk across to Concordia Restaurant.

Visited on 4/6. Desert cemetery - rocks & sand. Many old monuments/markers - some are blank now due to weather. Very well kept.

Your best bet is to contact the Concordia Heritage Association. They have a Facebook and web page. They are the ones charged with taking care of the cemetery and may be able to help you.
