After leaving Barnett store we went to visit Concordia Cemetery on N. Stevens St. It is Texas State Historic site (also known as El Paso' Boot Hill) that was founded in the mid 1800's by Hugh Stevenson and his wife. Mr. Stevenson was a trader. Veterans, civic leaders, pioneers are buried here. A little run down cemetery but it had some interesting tombstones.
Next visit was to check out St. Patrick Cathedral on N. Mesa St. It is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of El Paso, TX and the mother church for 668,000 Catholics. The art work is beautiful.
We cruised through the city centre of El Paso, checking out some interesting buildings and landmarks.We contacted Connie, a good friend of ours, to see if it was okay for us to come visit her husband, John, who has been in the hospital for a while. She told us to come on over, so we did. John was in the same college years with us. In later years he became a preacher and we had him marry us in 1992. Connie was the only witness at our wedding. She also took pictures during our vows. It was good to see Connie and John again.
