Have been to Concordia several times looking for gunslingers etc.. It is a very interesting old and spooky cemetery. Went to the Day of the Dead festival in Oct, it was very cool.

Great site to visit--not on a windy day though, This cemetery has lots of character. You must eat at L and Js if you go here.

Just as impressed with this as most everything else in El Paso. Don't waste your time with this or the city.

it's just a broken down old cemetery full of Mexicans that didn't serve in the military, or the would have been buried elsewhere. typical El Paso second class stuff

Visit the the Buffalo soldiers that are buried there as well as all the history that is there from some of the first settlers of El Paso, from its cowboy's to its Shady Ladies. Try to schedule a trip when they are doing tours so you can see the costumes and the history of who is buried there.

We walked through after eating at L&J as you park at the cemetery to eat. Plenty of history pretty much anyone and everyone has passed through it to get to the west. We were losing daylight so it was hard to read a lot of the markers. Come by and then eat next door. That's a good night.

Went to see the grave of John Wesley Hardin. It was very interesting. There are signs but are faded. There is not shade or grass. Reminds you of the old boot hills. But exploring with a general sense of direction you will enjoy surprises galore.

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.
