Some of the well known outlaws in the west are buried here. It is not really a beautiful cemetery with greenery, compared to the one next to it, but it has a lot of character. It is dusty and very hot if you go in...More

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

Not fancy, not eye-catching. Just an old graveyard beneath a large highway intersection. Use the late afternoon hours when shadows grow longer or very early in the morning to embrace the atmosphere. And there is more to see than just John Wesley Hardin. Read the...More

We spent several hours looking around and taking pictures. All the rich history that was there. It gives you the feel of what the "OLD WEST" was all about.

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.
