Owner description: This historic cemetery is the final resting place of John Wesley Hardin, "The Fastest Gun in the West."
Reviewed 9 November 2017

Much more interesting if you take a tour! Separate areas for various religions and ethnicities; you'll also see tiny babies' graves, perhaps victims of common diseases, the nearly famous with their stories, and the boot hill of sad, poor, and unknown. If you don't appreciate this type of history, it will bore you to death.

This is an historic cemetery with quite a few burials of legendary Western characters such as John Wesley Harden. It's an interesting place to visit and one way to learn the history of the local area.

The cemetery looks quite run down. Some interesting tombs and of course the famous resting place of John Wesley Harding.

John Wesley Hardin is buried here. He is in a caged or barred plot so as dissuade souvenir hunters from defacing his grave. His plot is among the nicest in the cemetery.
