Visitor Tips and News About Pat Garrett's Grave
Section and row help a lot -- look for big marker for the Garrett family and it's very easy to find. Park at grounds keepers building and walk down road, Garrett family plot on the right under shade.[Crys, 09/02/2013]

I visited Pat Garrett's grave today, but before I did I researched where it was located. It is in the Masonic Cemetery in Las Cruces. Once in the cemetery, it is in Section 7, Block 11. Hopes this helps find it easier.[Ruth L, 08/30/2011]
Pat Garrett, the man who killed Billy the Kid (or did he?), rests in a cemetery in the middle of Las Cruces, New Mexico. The cemetery, which is small and difficult to find, is one of the state's little known treasures. Garrett's grave is located in the middle toward the front of the grounds; ask a groundskeeper for directions. It won't be the first time.[Jason Watkins, 07/04/2004]
