interesting history, when you get to the cemetery you'll feel if you are in the old west, people born in the 1800's and passing away in the early 1900's makes you wonder how El Paso was in the wild west. Proximity to Mexico I am sure made El Paso interesting to be at, put yourself in the 1800's no freeways, horse life, cowboy life in the wild west. Just walking around this cemetery with respect will make your body feel the history.

I’d been hoping there was Day of the Dead events happening on my day layover, that wasn’t to be, but the pictures of it piqued my interest in this cemetery. Turns out it was better in the pictures, but any experience anywhere once is ok. :) I found a section of Mormons who’d died around the same time and young, they were victims of an epidemic after having been forced to retreat from attempts to colonize Mexico. Cemeteries are quaint. That anyone would want to keep memory / history of others seems an outdated concept to a new prevalent breed of American, the corporate puff. Every Day We Enter More Communism Together.

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.
