Susan Smith's Young Victims Memorial

Very nice, well-maintained spot with a bit of serenity that honors the young victims of a tragic event.

Susan Smith drove her two kids down a boat ramp and into Long Lake on Oct. 25, 1994. Her subsequent trial and conviction was a feeding frenzy for 1990s tabloid journalism.
