"The Winds and the Sea sing their requiem and shall forever more. ..." Profoundly evocative of the harsh realities endured by Southport's long-gone seafarers, the Old Smithville Burying Ground (1804) is a must-see. Obelisks dedicated to lost river pilots, monuments to entire crews and families who lived and died by the sea, and stoic elegies memorialize Southport's past as no other historic site can. Many of the names immortalized on these stones continue on among descendants still living in the area.
